Medient Studios' Subsidiary Atlas International to Distribute Hit Dutch Documentary The New Wilderness

EFFINGHAM COUNTY, GA--(Marketwired - May 1, 2014) - Medient Studios, Inc. (OTCQB: MDNT) ('Medient') announced today that its subsidiary Atlas International Film GmbH ('Atlas') has acquired the film distribution rights of the Dutch wildlife movie The New Wilderness. Shot in state-of-the-art 4K, the documentary grossed more than $7 Million at the Dutch box office in 2013. It was the seventh highest grossing film finishing above hits like Iron Man 3, The Hangover Part III, Gravity, Django Unchained and Fast & Furious 6.

Philipp Menz, Managing Director of Atlas, said, "We are confident that The New Wilderness will repeat its strong performance in other territories around the world. Documentary films are beginning to find strong audiences and we are glad to enter this market with such a strong product."

Three years in production, with more than 600 shooting days in the field, The New Wilderness is a spectacle, celebrating the wildness and stark beauty of the Oostvaardersplassen -- 6,000 hectares of newly formed polder that has been transformed into one of Europe's most dynamic and productive wetlands -- home to some of Europe's rarest birds such as the magnificent white tailed eagle, which hadn't been seen in the Netherlands since the Middle Ages.
