Curt Johnson, who previously worked on Thoth, directs the project about young animal rights activists and their detractors.
'Curt Johnson has crafted a riveting document of the animal rights movement in the age of the Patriot Act,' said Matt Pizzolo, President of Halo-8. 'It's a stunningly even-handed portrayal that transcends the buzz-words and rhetoric of either side. We are thrilled to bring such a bold film to audiences around the world.'
The deal was struck at the Fantasia Film Festival. Halo-8 plans a September theatrical release and an August DVD launch.
