The New-York based distributor has acquired all North American rights to the IFP Documentary Lab film ahead of its world premiere at DOC NYC on November 13.

Mad Tiger

Mad Tiger will open next year followed by a digital and home video release.

Directed by Jonathan Yi and Michael Haertlein, the documentary follows bandmates Yellow and Red from Japanese art-punk band Peelander-Z.

In particular the film looks at what happens to their friendship when Red announces his departure from the band after a final tour. Josh Koury produces.

Film Movement president Michael E Rosenberg brokered the deal with the directors.

This is Film Movement’s second pick-up of a DOC NYC title after Don Hardy’s Theory Of Obscurity: A Film About The Residents.
