iW NEWS | Koch Lorber Croons to "Glass"

Oscar nominee Scott Hicks‘ (“Shine”) latest doc “Glass: A Portrait of Philip in Twelve Parts” has been acquired by Koch Lorber Films, the company announced Thursday afternoon. The film explores the contemporary composer’s creative process in opera, concert and film along with glimpses of his personal and spiritual life. The U.S. theatrical and home video distribution rights deal was negotiated by Koch Lorber Films president Richard Lorber and Film Sales Company president Andrew Herwitz on behalf of Mandalay Motion Pictures and Independent Media. The film will premiere at New York’s IFC Center in April. “Scott’s unique perspective and talents as a documentarian are on full display in this highly-engaging film,” commented Lorber in a statement. “Philip Glass is one of contemporary music’s most innovative talents, and ‘A Portrait of Philip in Twelve Parts’ delivers the enigmatic composer in a way we’ve never seen him before.” [Brian Brooks]
