The film will premiere at New York's IFC Center in April. "Scott's unique perspective and talents as a documentarian are on full display in this highly-engaging film," commented Lorber in a statement. "Philip Glass is one of contemporary music's most innovative talents, and 'A Portrait of Philip in Twelve Parts' delivers the enigmatic composer in a way we've never seen him before." [Brian Brooks]
