Paladin sets ‘Otter’ docu for U.S.

Sea Studios' '501' to be released this spring

Paladin has signed on as U.S. distributor for wildlife docu “Otter 501,” with plans to release the film in theaters this spring.

“Otter,” from the filmmaking team at Sea Studios Foundation, tells the story of an orphaned otter pup, called 501, who is rescued by a team of biologists at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, then introduced to an adoptive sea otter mother.

Paralleling the film’s narrative, one of the aquarium’s young volunteers, Katie, has developed a series of Facebook video posts that chronicle her own experience with the rescue.

“501 is one of the more adorable creatures we will see onscreen this year,” said Paladin prexy Mark Urman.

Paladin plans to first release “Otter” in West Coast markets, including Seattle, Portland and the Bay Area. Pic preems Thursday at the Santa Barbara Film Festival.
