FilmRise has acquired the North American distribution rights to documentary MOTHERLAND, which won the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Commanding Vision at Sundance.

Directed by Ramona S. Diaz, the documentary takes place in one of the world’s largest and busiest maternity hospitals in the Philippines. Diaz follows three women as they navigate through the jam-packed delivery rooms to overflowing corridors. It also screened at the 2017 Berlinale in the Speciality Forum Section.

Diaz and Rey Cuerdo produce. Brillante Ma Mandoza, Sally Jo Fifer, Justine Nagan and Chris White executive produce. The film will also be available to stream later this year on Amazon Prime Video.
