Oscilloscope Acquires Pharmaceutical Doc ‘Off Label’

Oscilloscope Acquires Pharmaceutical Doc 'Off Label'

After premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival back in 2012, Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher’s documentaryOff Label” has found North American distribution with Oscilloscope Laboratories. The film takes a serious and sobering look at our country’s pharmaceutical culture, where doctors liberally dole out prescriptions to psychotropic drugs, causing alarmingly increasing rates of abuse and dependence. Weaving together stories and accounts from drug testing subjects, big business representatives, and others affected by the rampant overmedication of America. 

O-Scope’s Dan Berger and David Laub said, “Mike and Donal have created an unflinching look at an important subject, and their adept direction ensures that no matter how infuriating this information is, the film always remains touching and emotional.”

“Off Label” will be released on August 9th, receiving both theatrical and digital-platform distribution.
