IFC Entertainment and Red Envelope Take Rights to "An Unreasonable Man"

North American rights to directors Henriette Mantel and Steve Skrovan‘s “An Unreasonable Man” has been picked up by IFC Entertainment in partnership with Red Envelope Entertainment from Submarine Entertainment and William Morris. Day and date distribution label IFC First Take will simultaneously premiere the film theatrically and on local cable’s On Demand platform. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recently short listed the film for consideration in the documentary category for the 79th Academy Awards. The doc looks at the life and career of controversial figure, Ralph Nader. A team of historians working for Atlantic Monthly magazine recently included Nader on its list of the 100 most influential Americans of all time, one of only three living people to make the list. “‘An Unreasonable Man’ is a documentary sure to strike a chord with Americans in the way that only Ralph Nader can,” stated IFC Entertainment president Jonathan Sehring. “It represents the true independent spirit of filmmaking and furthers the rapid expansion of our First Take slate.” [Brian Brooks]
