New US independent Dokument Films has acquired all North American rights to Achim Bornhak's biopic 8 Miles High (Das Wilde Leben). Dokument is a subsidiary of Illinois-based MPI Media Group.
MPI's vice president of acquisitions and development Greg Newman negotiated the deal with Andreas Rothbauer of Beta Cinema and the company plans a 2008 release.
8 Miles High (Das Wilde Leben) tells the true story of European wild child Uschi Obermaier, a small town Bavarian girl who rose to become a 1960s fashion icon and free-spirited companion of the Rolling Stones.
