Pic, along with fellow Lorber docu “Intangible Asset #82,” will be distribbed via Lorber HT Digital, which will offer the pic via VOD outlets including MyFilmBlog.com starting immediately. Enthusiasts will be able to pick up a hard copy of the film on DVD in late 2009/early 2010. Theatrical release is skedded for Q2 of 2009.
“We wanted to make the VOD available almost as an extension of the movie’s premiere at Hot Docs,” Lorber said. Pic is available online prior to its screening at the fest.
