IndiePix Takes ‘Dick’: Documentary to Be Distributed Online

IndiePix Takes 'Dick': Documentary to Be Distributed Online

IndiePix Films today announced that it has acquired all domestic rights to “Dick: The Documentary,” a co-production of first time filmmaker Brian Fender and Isotope Films, the production company of acclaimed documentary producer/ director Chiemi Karasawa (“Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me,” “Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction”). The film premiered earlier this year at the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, and features a thoughtful discussion of male sexuality by 63 men across a wide range of ages, backgrounds, and orientations. In a press release, Fender described the project: “It’s touching, it’s funny, it’s honest… an honest depiction of what it means from first perceptions all the way to the loss of function that men experience.”

IndiePix plans the online equivalent of a theatrical presentation, opening in mid-September of 2014, with an exclusive on-line 90-day general market streaming premiere presentation, followed by a home and institutional market release in January of 2015.
