Ryan Phillippe’s Human Rights Doc to Hit Theaters This Summer

Actor and exec producer Ryan Phillippe’s doc “Isolated,” which focuses on an ongoing genocide in the Indonesian province of West Papua, is getting some big screen treatment.

Phillippe and Something Kreative, the production company launched by producer Geoffrey J. Clark, struck up an agreement with Participant Media’s Pivot cabler, the Orchard and TUGG to give the film a multiplatform release.

The Justin LePera-directed and Geoffrey J. Clark-produced film will be released throughout the summer to audiences where they can watch it in theaters, on TV or on VOD. The doc will air on Pivot and the Orchard will distribute the film on VOD platforms. TUGG is set to distribute it on-demand in theaters. iTunes has also picked up the film.

Phillippe lends his voice for the narration of the human rights doc. The film follows a group of pro surfers who go searching in uncharted waters in West Papua and stumble upon a lesser-known genocide that has been taking place.

The film has been screened at film festivals around the world and other celebs, such as Brittany Snow, Matt Dallas, Cody Simpson, Matt Lanter and Justin Chatwin, have gotten involved in the cause as well. Along with the highlighting the genocide in West Papua, those involved with the film have launched the campaign Isolated Ambassadors for Peace to increase international awareness of the events taking place. Phillippe and a list of celebs have released Ambassadors for Peace videos.

There was no word on the exact release date. The trailer is below:
