Surely, this doesn’t need an intro at this point, given how much we’ve talked about it. I saw it a couple of weeks ago, and reviewed it enthusiastically HERE.
Announced in August, Sundance Selects acquired USA theatrical rights to documentary master Ken Burns’ The Central Park Five, which Burns co-directed with his daughter Sarah Burns, and his son-in-law David McMahon.
The film made its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May, where Burns expressed his hopes that the film gets a theatrical release (before heading to PBS) unlike his past documentaries, stating, “We want to release it theatrically because the running time makes it managable and there’s something urgent about it.“
Burns is getting his wish, as it’ll open theatrically in New York on November 23rd, at the IFC Center, followed by Los Angeles on November 30th, at Landmark’s Nuart Theatre.
I expect the accolades to continue after the film is released theatrically.
A brand new energetic release trailer has surfaced, with all-new footage you wouldn’t have seen in the TIFF trailer, which is what we’ve been using until now, and it’s embedded below
