7th Art and Warner Home Video Nab North American Rights to "Rock the Bells"

7th Art Releasing and Warner Home Video have jointly acquired North American rights to Casey Suchan and Denis Henry Hennelly‘s Tribeca and Slamdance Hip Hop doc “Rock The Bells.” The deal was negotiated by 7th Art Releasing’s Udy Epstein, WHV’s Eva Davis and Felicia Bell, and Hennelly and Suchan of Open Road Films. The film will open in April in select cities across the US, while the DVD release is planned for mid to late July. The film is the story of the inaugural Rock The Bells festival in San Bernardino, California. “Personifying the fierce independence and Do-It-Yourself spirit of the Hip Hop generation, entrepreneur Chang Weisberg puts everything (his reputation, his sanity, his family, his mortgage) on the line for his impossible dream of reuniting genre superstars and notorious no-shows The Wu-Tang Clan. The film also features performers Redman, Dilated Peoples, MC Supernatural, Sage Francis and others. [Brian Brooks]
