Lorber Films heads to ‘Woodmans’

Documentary to see theatrical release next year

Lorber Films has picked up North American rights to “The Woodmans,” a doc centered on a family of artists.

Film, helmed and produced by C. Scott Willis, bowed earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival, where it scored the kudo for New York docu.

Movie chronicles the history of the Woodman family, with a focus on the effects the 1981 suicide of Francesca Woodman, a photographer, had on parents George and Betty and on brother Charles.

Distribution deal was negotiated by Richard Lorber and Elizabeth Sheldon of Kino Lorber with Willis and Submarine’s Josh Braun.

“Woodmans” will play Gotham’s Film Forum starting Jan. 19 ahead of a rollout to other national markets. Doc joins a slate of upcoming Lorber releases that also includes “Le Quattro Volte” and “Armadillo.”
