“Back in Time,” which revisits Hollywood’s iconic “Back to the Future” trilogy, has found a home with Gravitas Ventures. The distribution company will give the documentary a limited theatrical and VOD release in October and provide “Back to the Future” fans with an in-depth look at the mechanisms behind the time-travel hit.

The synopsis reads:  “In “Back in Time,” cast, crew, and fans explore the classic time-travel trilogy’s resonance throughout pop culture. As the project evolved, it took the filmmakers from the joyous nostalgia at a massive London fan event to the living rooms of Michael J. Fox, Robert Zemeckis, Steven Spielberg, Bob Gale, Lea Thompson and Christopher Lloyd. Nothing is overlooked as they explore everything from Eric Stoltz’s casting to the invention of the hover-board.”

“Iconic documentaries, like a bolt of lightning, only come around so often,” said Nolan Gallagher, Founder and CEO of Gravitas Ventures. “We are honored to be a part of the ‘Back to the Future’ mythology and bring this must-have film to the millions of fans who have loved the trilogy all these years.”

Filmmakers Jason Aron and Lee Leshen added, “As both fans of the trilogy and filmmakers, it was extremely important for us to have this documentary seen by as many people as possible.  We knew within minutes of meeting Nolan that the team at Gravitas would make that dream a possibility.”
