Oscilloscope Laboratories Picks Up North American Distribution Rights To ‘Tchoupitoulas’

Oscilloscope Laboratories Picks Up North American Distribution Rights To 'Tchoupitoulas'

It didn’t do much for me when I saw it the SXSW Film Festival in March this year; Vanessa saw it as well and reviewed it, although her reaction to it wasn’t all that different from mine (you can read her review HERE).

Now some of the rest of you will get your opportunity to see it judge for yourselves, as Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American rights to Bill and Turner Ross’s HotDocs award-winning documentary Tchoupitoulas.

Oscilloscope plans to continue to screen the film at festivals, and will eventually release it in theaters (limited) later this year, followed by a digital release.

For those of you in New York, it’ll next screen at BamCinemafest, which runs from June 20 to July 1

Described as an abstract story of the New Orleans night, the film documents one night in the many lives of a thriving populace, with 3 young black boys as our guide. 

Watch the film’s teaser trailer below and meet you 3 young wide-eyed conduits:

I have to say this is probably my favorite documentary I've seen in the past five years. I guess I can understand why it didn't blow everyone at SXSW away, but for me it's some of the best filmmaking that is happening right now. Very exciting to get to see it again in the theater.
