Fisher Klingenstein acquires rights to pic

Newly minted Fisher Klingenstein Films has acquired worldwide rights to the documentary “Back Door Channels: The Price of Peace” and plans a platform release in New York City on Sept. 16, followed by openings in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Cleveland, Boston and Philadelphia.

“Peace” focuses on the interplay between the official government channels and the men who acted largely behind the scenes of the peace process between Egypt and Israel, tracing the confluence of factors that led to the Camp David Accords and ensuing peace treaty of 1979.

The film examines the personalities — Menachem Begin, Anwar El-Sadat, and Jimmy Carter — who drove the peace process along with the secret liaisons, communications, and third-party world leaders who played roles in forging the agreement.

CEO Danny Fisher, former CEO of City Lights Media, noted that “Channels” is the first theatrical release of the new company. “The film is incredibly timely given the current upheavals in Egypt, Libya, Syria and literally all over the Middle East and delivers a powerful message about value of diplomacy,” he added.

Exec producer Matthew Tollin said, “We are very excited to be working with the Fisher Klingenstein team, who has believed in the film and its message since they viewed the initial rough cut — before the birth of the ‘Arab Spring.’?”

Fisher Klingenstein is led by producer-financiers Danny Fisher, Jack Fisher and Alan Klingenstein, formerly head of Filbert Steps.
