Steven Silver's "The Bang Bang Club," starring Ryan Philippe, Malin Akerman and Taylor Kitsch, is getting a U.S. theatrical release through Tribeca Films in the second quarter of 2011. The film will also be available via alternate platforms such VOD as part of Tribeca's distribution strategy.

The drama is based on the book of the same name by Greg Marinovich and Joao Silva about a group of four young South African photographers who documented the final, violent days leading up to the end of apartheid. The character driven story recounts the personal struggle the photographers went through in order to show the world the harrowing and socially relevant images they captured through their lenses.

Nick Savva, Director of Acquisitions for Tribeca Film, describes the plot in more detail, "'The Bang Bang Club' takes you deep inside the final days of apartheid, showing you everything these photographers went through in order to show the world what was unfolding there.The entire cast delivers compelling performances and the experience of watching the film is unforgettable. Tribeca Film is proud to be able to introduce U.S. audiences to this film."

"Tribeca Film will be able to champion 'The Bang Bang Club' in truly unique ways,” added Geoffrey Gilmore, Tribeca Enterprise's Chief Creative Officer, in a statement. "We will offer audiences a range of avenues through which they can discover this extraordinary and effective work. Along with our partners at American Express, we look forward to working with Entertainment One, Steven Silver and his producing team to maximize the potential for this film."
