Oscilloscope hits a DVD Milestone

Adam Yauch's company inks distribution deal

Adam Yauch’s Oscilloscope Laboratories has inked an exclusive DVD distrib deal with Milestone Films for the next three years.

Oscilloscope will become the sole distrib of Milestone’s extensive catalog, including Charles Burnett’s 1977 film “Killer of Sheep,” Rupert Julian’s 1925 “The Phantom of the Opera” (starring Lon Chaney), and Orson Welles’ 1962 adaptation of Franz Kafka’s “The Trial,” starring Anthony Perkins.

Kent Mackenzie’s 1961 “The Exiles” will be the first release under the agreement. LGBT-centric docu “Word Is Out: Stories of Some of Our Lives,” will be released in cooperation with Milestone’s sister company Milliarium Zero.

“The Milestone team does amazing work. Clearly they care deeply about the films they choose to release and how they release them,” said Yauch, who is spending more time on Oscilloscope since a recent cancer diagnosis curtailed his plans to tour with his band, the Beastie Boys.

Yauch updated Beastie Boys fans on his physical condition recently, saying that he was “still pretty stiff” from surgery on his salivary gland, where the cancer was localized, “but it gets better everyday.” He will be undergoing radiotherapy for seven weeks this fall and is expected to recover completely.
