Distributor takes foreign rights to documentary about stylish, older women.

Dogwoof has acquired foreign rights to Lina Plioplyte and Ari Seth Cohen documentary Advanced Style.

Based on Cohen’s fashion blog and book, the film follows seven New Yorkers aged 62-95 as they challenge the stereotypes of beauty and ageing with their idiosyncratic fashion style.

Advanced Style will receive its world premiere at Hot Docs 2014 (April 24-May 4) in Toronto and a UK theatrical release is set for May 9, 2014.

Vesna Cudic brokered the deal with Cohen and Plioplyte on behalf of Dogwoof Global.

Cohen began his blog about New York’s stylish seniors in 2008 and his subjects found themselves in a position of new-found fame and cultural influence. The documentary focuses on some of his favourite subjects, whose personal style and spirit have guided their approach to ageing.  Each offers their own unique perspective on overcoming life’s obstacles.
