02 May DEADLINE: Freestyle Digital Media Acquires North American Rights to Documentary ‘Head to Head’ – Film Briefs
EXCLUSIVE: Freestyle Digital Media has acquired North American rights to Andrea Alberti’s documentary, Head to Head. The digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group plans to release the film across VOD platforms on May 17.
Head to Head follows six women experiencing traumatic blows to their self-image after unexpectedly losing their hair due to Alopecia, Lupus or chemotherapy. Among them is the film’s director, Alberti, who sets out on a five-year journey to tell their stories while grappling with her own identity and what it means to be authentic. Although each of the women experience subsequent mental health, relationship, financial and social impacts, they individually cope and recover from these challenges in dramatically different ways.
Pic was produced by Katy Osborn. Freestyle Digital Media negotiated the deal to acquire Head to Head directly with Glen Reynolds of Circus Road Films.
