Visit Films Partners with GoDigital to Release Documentary 'Ben Lee: Catch My Disease' on VOD

Visit Films announced today that it is partnering with GoDigital on the digital release of Amiel Courtin-Wilson’s (“Bastardy,” “Hail”) documentary “Ben Lee: Catch My Disease” November 6.

The documentary paints a playful portrait of the Australian singer-songwriter Ben Lee, with commentary from some of Hollywood’s biggest stars who knew him, such as ex-girlfriend Claire Danes and old friends Jason Schwartzman, Michelle Williams, Zooey Deschanel, Winona Ryder, Thurston Moore and Beastie Boy Mike D. 

The 86-minute documentary took almost ten years to make, and Courtin-Wilson, in addition to writing, directing and producing the doc, also served as its cinematographer. 

An official synopsis from the press release follows: 

The focus of this documentary is charming, intelligent and iconoclastic Australian singer-songwriter Ben Lee, whose creative growth since his early adolescence has undergone almost relentless media scrutiny. This is a playful yet deeply intimate portrait of Lee, exploring his meteoric rise to pop stardom and the issues of celebrity and spirituality that arise when launched into the spotlight.
