Shingle acquires U.S. rights to docu

Strand Releasing has acquired all U.S. rights to Carol Morley’s documentary “Dreams of Life” from Entertainment One.

Morley’s credits include the documentary “The Alcohol Years.”

“I knew from the moment I read the anonymous story in the newspaper that I was going to make a film about Joyce Vincent,” said Morley. “I could not let her remain forgotten.”

The film screened at this year’s edition of SXSW. Strand plans for an Aug. 3 opening.

“Dreams of a Life” is presented by Film4 and UK Film Council in association with Shoot for the Moon with the participation of Bord Scannán na hÉireann / Irish Film Board. It is an A Cannon and Morley Production in association with Soho Moon Pictures.
