Sundance Selects signs up The Punk Singer
Company to release Sini Anderson’s punk rock documentary [pictured] later this year.
Sundance Selects has acquired North American rights to Sini Anderson’s The Punk Singer.
Anderson’s punk rock documentary world premiered at this year’s SXSW and profiles outspoken feminist icon Kathleen Hanna through 20 years of archival footage and intimate interviews with Hanna.
The deal was negotiated by Jeff Deutchman, director of acquisitions and productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Cinetic Media and Linda Lichter on behalf of the filmmakers.
Sundance Selects is planning a fall 2013 release.
Jonathan Sehring, president of Sundance Selects/IFC Films, commented: “The Punk Singer is one of those great documentaries that makes you realise how much a single person can accomplish in a short span of time.
“We look forward to bringing the film to the multitude of Kathleen’s fans, as well as a broad audience.”
The Punk Singer was edited by Bo Mehrad and Jessica Hernandez, and was produced by Tamra Davis, Gwen Bialic, Rachel Dengiz and Erin Owens.
