Berlin-based sales and production company Boomtown Media International closed a distribution deal with UK producer / distributor AX1 Films at last week's Cannes market for Thomas Grube's new theatrical documentary TRIP TO ASIA / THE QUEST FOR HARMONY.

The film was produced by Boomtown in co-production with broadcasters BBC and ZDF, and received its premiere in February at the Berlin Film Festival. It has since clocked up over 110,000 admissions on its German theatrical release so far and will be released by AX1 in October 2008.

The 'fly on the wall' documentary focuses on the Berlin Philharmonic's 2005 tour to various Asian countries including China, and the fascinating collection of diverse personalities who make up the microcosmos of this unique and world famous group of instrumentalists - a democratic, self-governing orchestra ever since its founding in 1882 - with Sir Simon Rattle as Artistic Director.

TRIP TO ASIA follows on from director, Thomas Grube's successful collaboration with the Berlin Philharmonic on the multi-award-winning feature documentary RYHTHM IS IT!
