Aiming to meet what it calls ‘surging’ demand London-based independent content distributor Scorpion TV has added a slate of what it calls landmark documentaries to its catalogue following representation deals with four producers of premium factual content in the US and the UK.
At the head of the new slate is 2019 BBC Storyville documentary Seahorse: The Dad Who Gave Birth (1 x 89’; pictured). Produced by Grain Media, the film tells the story of Freddy, a gay transgender man, who decides the carry his own baby. To Freddy, it feels like a pragmatic decision; to the many others, however, it feels confusing, confrontational and offensive. Made with unprecedented levels of access over a three-year period, Seahorse is an intimate, audacious and lyrical story about family, gender and love.
