Arthouse nabs ‘Herb and Dorothy’

Sasaki's documentary set for 2009 release

Gotham-based Arthouse Films has nabbed worldwide rights to Megumi Sasaki’s docu “Herb and Dorothy” for an early 2009 theatrical release.

Pic concerns a postal clerk and a librarian who slowly amassed a large contemporary art collection over 30 years, stuffing more than 4,000 pieces of art into their tiny apartment. The collection is now worth millions of dollars.

“Herb and Dorothy” preemed at the AFI SilverDocs Film Festival and recently pocketed both the doc and audience awards at the Hamptons Film Festival.

Arthouse Films specializes in artist-based docs. Other titles include “The Universe of Keith Haring,” “Rem Koolhaas — A Kind of Architect” and “A Walk Into the Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory.”
