‘Plague’ lands U.K. release

Oscar-nominated documentary hits screens in spring

Roco Films has pacted with London-based Dartmouth Films to secure U.K. theatrical distribution for “How to Survive a Plague,” the David France docu that’s currently up for an Academy Award.

“Plague,” which Sundance Selects released Stateside in the fall, follows a group of activists who fought for awareness and treatment in the early days of the AIDS epidemic.

The international arm of Bay Area-based doc distribution company Roco boasts a catalog that also includes nonfiction titles such as “Born Into Brothels,” “Hoop Dreams” and “Jesus Camp.” Dartmouth, meanwhile, is a funder and distributor of docu films that aims to work with advocacy groups, NGOs and other community orgs as paths to getting docs on more screens.

Dartmouth will release “Plague” in the U.K. in the spring, with exact details yet to be confirmed.
