Angel Studios, the studio behind the global blockbuster SOUND OF FREEDOM, has acquired worldwide rights to the feature film SIGHT. The film was written and directed by Andrew Hyatt (THE BLIND, PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST), and produced by David Fischer for Open River Entertainment and Darren Moorman for Reserve Entertainment. SIGHT is slated for a May 24, 2024 release.
"Rarely have we seen the strength and resolve of Chinese-Americans shown in a powerful way on the big screen," said Fischer. "After spending years bringing SIGHT to life, Angel Studios is the perfect partner for audiences who want to be inspired by Dr. Wang's story of hope, perseverance, and freedom."
"When the film SIGHT was brought to the Angel Guild, it received an incredible amount of support. Our audience resonates with true stories of everyday heroes," said Jared Geesey, Chief Distribution Officer of Angel Studios.
"We are confident that this story will encourage all who experience it and help spur a movement to help others, and are honored to release the film during Asian Heritage Month."
SIGHT follows the true story of Dr. Ming Wang, a Chinese immigrant who defies all odds to become a world-renowned eye surgeon in the United States. Drawing upon the grit and determination he gained from a turbulent uprising in his upbringing, Dr. Wang sets out to restore the sight of a blind orphan.
