French producer and distributor ZED (Manuel Catteau) becomes the sole owner of all the assets of the documentary producer Point du Jour - Les Films du Balibari by decision of the Commercial Court of Paris.
The company - which declared its suspension of payments on February 1, 2023 - has been placed under a restructuring procedure on February 15th and is now in the process of liquidiation.
As of August 1, 2023, Point du Jour - Les Films du Balibari continues to operate under the aegis of ZED which takes over all documentary films in development and production, as well as the bilingual French/French sign language documentary collection, L'Œil et la Main - the only French program for deaf and hearing-impaired audiences since 1994.
The Point du Jour - Les Films du Balibari catalog - estimated at over 900 hours - is now held by ZED, which will be fully responsible for its distribution.
Former head of the company Luc Martin-Gousset will not be taking part in the continuation of the business.
