Politically-drivenUS distributor Cinema Libre Studio has acquired worldwide rights to KevinKeating's documentary Giuliani Time about former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's personal background and hiscontentious Zero Tolerance policy.

Thecompany plans a limited launch in New York in May followed by a DVD release inSeptember.

GiulianiTime played at the Rotterdam andVancouver international film festivals and questions the popular belief thatthe combative public servant single-handedly conquered crime in New York City.

'Itis crucial that Americans are given access to as much factual information abouttheir political leaders as possible in order to vote intelligently,'Cinema Libre head of theatrical distribution Richard Castro said.

'This film reveals aside of Rudolph Giuliani that most of us have been unaware of or afraid topublicly address.'
