Independent producer/distributor AX1 Films has acquired UK and Irish rights to the award-winning Chinese film, KEXEXILI: MOUNTAIN PATROL from Sony Pictures International, which was produced by China’s Huayi Bros and Columbia Tri-Star Pictures.

Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and winner of major awards at the Tokyo and Berlin film festivals, Lu Chuan's devastating film is based on real-life incidents a decade ago in the mountains of the Kekexili national park in Tibet. Clearly filmed in the most adverse conditions, the director follows the trail blazed by such films as Werner Herzog's Aguirre: this is action-drama with the feel and impact of a visceral thriller.
