Red Flag Releasing, the politically conscious distributor launched by Paul Federbush, Laura Kim and Ron Stein, has acquired its first title.
The company has taken all North American rights from IP Advisors and WME Global to Reed Cowan’s 8: The Mormon Proposition following its recent Sundance premiere.
Red Flag plans a theatrical and VOD run in spring on the documentary, which investigates the ongoing battle between California and Utah-based Mormons and the LGBT community.
Matters came to a head last year with the vote of the California ballot measure Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriage in the state.
Cowman produced with Emily Pearson, Steven Greenstreet and Christopher Volz. The film was co-directed by Greenstreet and narrated by Dustin Lance Black.
