iW NEWS | Arthouse Takes "Chuck"

Arthouse Films announced today that it has acquired worldwide rights to the feature documentary “Chuck Close,” directed by the late Marion Cajori. The doc examines the working process of acclaimed American painter Chuck Close, and solidifies his place in Contemporary Art as the re-inventor of the portrait. The deal was negotiated by David Koh and Lilly Bright on behalf of Arthouse Films & Curiously Bright Entertainment along with Isabel Jay and George Griffin on behalf of The Art Kaleidoscope Foundation and the Estate of Marion Cajori. Arthouse Films plans a theatrical release in early 2009, followed by a DVD release on the Arthouse Films label. [Peter Knegt]
