CAVU Pictures has acquired rights to Antonino D’Ambrosio’s political documentary “Let Fury Have The Hour.” The New York-based distributor plans a theatrical release beginning December 14 at New York’s QUAD Cinema, followed by an expanded rollout through January.
Using subjects such as Eve Ensler, Lewis Black, John Sayles, Shepard Fairey, Tom Morello, Edwidge Danticat, Wayne Kramer and many others, “Fury” looks at the last 50 years of social history to make the case for activism and creative response as an antidote to cynicism. SnagFilms (Indiewire’s parent company) has VOD rights to “Fury,” which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, and will make the film available digitally mid-February.
“Building on the glowing reviews that ‘Let Fury Have The Hour’ garnered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, CAVU Pictures is extremely excited about theatrically launching this timely and socially conscious film to indie audiences nationwide,” said CAVU co-founder and distribution president Isil Bagdadi.
CAVU co-founder and president Michael Sergio negotiated the deal with attorney Jonathan Gray of Gray Krauss Stratford Des Rochers LLPon behalf of the filmmaker and Gigantic Pictures.
Among the films CAVU Pictures has produced and/or released are “Take Out,” “The Holy Land,” “Trailer Park Boys: The Movie” and “The Dukes.”
