Cinema Libre Studio has struck a deal with NetFlix to distribute Tim Robbins’ filmed version of his political play “Embedded Live.”
The fictionalized story about the Iraq war and the journalists who covered it, written and directed by Robbins (who also stars), was shot live with nine cameras during an Off Broadway run in New York. The music of the Clash, System of a Down, Public Enemy and Bob Dylan is featured.
This first title acquired by NetFlix has been available exclusively through the online service since May. Cinema Libre will handle expanding nationwide distribution beginning Sept. 20 of the DVD that includes bonus features.
