Ben Lee Documentary To Be Released November 6
Decade-in-the-making doc features ex-girlfriend Claire Danes and friends Jason Schwartzman, Michelle Williams, Beastie Boy Mike D, Zooey Deschanel and Winona Ryder as talking heads.
Ben Lee: Catch My Disease, the documentary on singer-songwriter Ben Lee, will get a digital and DVD release November 6.
GoDigital is handling the release on cable and Internet VOD while Baxter Brothers Film Releasing, in partnership with Strand Releasing, distributing on DVD.
The movie -- written, directed and produced by filmmaker Amiel Courtin-Wilson -- is described as a “playful yet deeply intimate portrait of Lee” and “the issues of celebrity and spirituality that arise when launched into the spotlight,” according to the producers.
Among those interviewed are ex-girlfriend Claire Danes and friends Jason Schwartzman, Michelle Williams, Beastie Boy Mike D, Zooey Deschanel and Winona Ryder.
"It's exciting for this film to have a US release," said Lee. "I find the mere fact of its existence mortifying in all the appropriate ways.”
