28 Apr DEADLINE: Freestyle Digital Media Has Acquired Global Rights To The Music Documentary Peter Case: A Million Miles Away – Film Briefs
EXCLUSIVE: Freestyle Digital Media has acquired global rights to the music documentary Peter Case: A Million Miles Away, directed by Fred Parnes, slating it for release across VOD platforms on May 23.
The film profiles one of America’s last great troubadours – Peter Case – who has lived a life of constant change, soaring highs, and soul-crushing lows. From the frigid suburbs of Buffalo, New York, to his early years living and busking on the streets of San Francisco, to formative experiences with punk band The Nerves and L.A. power pop legends The Plimsouls, to his decades-long, Grammy-nominated solo career, the documentary allows viewers to walk a million miles in the shoes of one of America’s finest musicians.
The film featuring new performances from Case, as well as Lady Blackbird and Chris Pierce, was produced by Jordan Krause and Chris Seefried. Appearing in it are many of Case’s friends and colleagues, including Ben Harper, Steve Earle, Victoria Williams, Jack Lee, Van Dyke Parks, Mitchell Froom, Steven Soles, Paul Zollo and Denise Sullivan. Freestyle Digital Media negotiated the deal to acquire the doc directly with Glen Reynolds of Circus Road Films. View a new trailer for it below.
