Montreal – Apartment 11 Productions is pleased to announce that leading American film distributor, Films Media Group has picked up its documentary: Braindamadj’d…Take II for educational distribution in the United States. The film will be released under Films for the Humanities and Sciences, one of Films Media Group’s four distribution brands.

Braindamadj’d…Take II documents Paul Nadler’s excruciating road to recovery. In 1994, at age 30, Nadler, a creative force in the Montreal television industry, suffered Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in a car accident. Found naked and on the verge of death on a roadside in Egypt, he had little hope of survival, let alone recovery of speech or movement. Despite the negative prognoses, Nadler fought and regained his movement, his speech, and his artistic flair – not only confounding his doctors, but also creating, « a wildly inventive film about his experience. »

The film has been extremely successful, winning a number of awards including: a Peabody Award, the Grand Prix Japan Prize, two Geminis, and further honours in Russia, New Zealand, Australia, Belgium, and Greece.

Braindamadj’d…Take II is produced by Jonathan Finkelstein of Apartment 11 Productions in association with CBC Newsworld. Commissioning editor of The Lens is Andrew Johnson. The film was produced by Apartment 11 Productions in association with CBC Newsworld and with the participation of RDI and the Knowledge Network. It was made possible with support from the Canadian Television Fund: Equity Investment and License Fee Programs created by the Government of Canada and the Canadian Cable Industry, Quebec Tax Credit Program administered by SODEC and the Canadian film or Video Production Tax Credit. The film is distributed in Canada by Filmoption International, and International rights lie with Smiley Documentary Film Distribution and World Sales.
