Emily Rothschild, director of acquisitions for Cinedigm, negotiated the film deal with CAA, on behalf of the filmmakers.

NARCO CULTURA is Schwarz's film debut. His photography work has appeared in major international publications such as National Geographic, Newsweek, Time, The New York Times Magazine, Geo, Paris Match, Stern, El Pais Magazine, GQ and Marie Claire among others. His coverage of the conflict in Haiti in 2004 received two World Press Awards. In 2005, Schwarz won the highly acclaimed humanitarian Visa D'or Award for his photographic work on settlers from the Gaza Strip. Schwarz is represented by CAA.

Hagopian is currently in pre-production on another collaboration with Parts & Labor, DIRTY WHITE BOY, which will star Michael K. Williams as the late hip-hop artist Old Dirty Bastard.

This deal marks the third in the last week for Parts & Labor producers' Van Hoy and Knudsen who went to Sundance this year with three films in competition. In addition to NARCO CULTURA, the duo produced Andrew Dosunmu's MOTHER OF GEORGE featuring a breakout performance by Danai Gurira (which sold to Oscilloscope Laboratories), and David Lowery's romantic drama AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS starring Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck and Ben Foster (which was acquired by IFC Films). Parts & Labor has produced more than a dozen films including Mike Mills' BEGINNERS (for which Christopher Plummer won the 2012 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor), Ira Sachs' KEEP THE LIGHTS ON, Aaron Katz's COLD WEATHER and Julia Lotkev's THE LONELIEST PLANET.
