By Indiewire | Indiewire July 8, 2008 at 5:38AM

Beastie Boy Adam Yauch's Oscilloscope Pictures has announced a worldwide rights deal for Caroline Suh's documentary "Frontrunners." The SXSW Film Festival premiere follows a New York City high school campaign for student council president and will debut on October 15th at Manhattan's Film Forum, followed by a national theatrical release and a DVD debut next year. "Caroline did an amazing job of documenting the insanity of a political race, while capturing the endearing human quality of these quirky school candidates," Yauch said in statement. "I loved seeing the dynamics of a fully functioning political system within the microcosm of Stuyvesant High School. From when I first saw it at South By Southwest Film Festival I was taken by its 'Rushmore' meets 'Spellbound' meets 'Election' quality." indieWIRE interviewed filmmaker Caroline Suh during SXSW in March.
