New York bow set for May
Fisher Klingenstein Films has acquired mental-health documentary “OC87: The Obsessive Compulsive, Major Depression, Bipolar, Asperger’s Movie” with an opening set for New York City on May 25 with a platform release to follow.
“OC87” tells the story of Bud Clayman’s attempts to deal with mulitple illnesses as a filmmaker without waiting for his symptoms to vanish. He wrote and co-directed with Glenn Holsten and Scott Johnston.
“When I made this film, I wanted to change people’s lives forever,” Clayman said. “I wanted to bust open the door of mental illness stigma and help mentally ill people and their families come out of the darkness into the light of acceptance.”
Ronna Wallace of Eastgate Pictures represented the filmmakers in the negotiation of the acquisition and distribution agreement. Most recent theatrical release for Fisher Klingenstein Films was the documentary “Back Door Channels.”
