CLS snaps up ‘Fascism’ doc

Libre nabs Russo's 'Freedom'

Indie distrib Cinema Libre Studio has acquired Aaron Russo’s docu “America: From Freedom to Fascism,” which follows the connection between income tax collection and the erosion of civil liberties in America.

CLS is handling the pic’s domestic theatrical release in July, as well as repping foreign sales.

Russo’s credits as a producer include pics “Trading Places” and “The Rose.”

“I started thinking about the state of the country today and how I had been hearing for years that there is no law that requires anyone to pay an income tax,” said the politically active helmer, who ran for governor of Nevada in 1998. “What I found out is that the IRS is only a symptom of a larger problem: that America is slowly but surely turning into a police state.”

CLS concentrates on releasing socially conscious titles.

Label’s previous credits include “Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism,” “Giuliani Time” and “Embedded Live.”
