The film about a group of pioneering ecologists bowed at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival and is set for a May theatrical release.

Abramorama has nabbed the North American rights to The Serengeti Rules, writer-director Nicolas Brown's documentary about young scientists addressing climate challenges that debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last year.

A May 10 theatrical release in New York City is planned, followed a week later by a Los Angeles rollout and then select markets in the U.S. and Canada through the spring and summer.

The Serengeti Rules follows a band of young scientists starting in the 1960s to discover a radical new theory of the natural world that could help confront the biggest environmental challenges of our time.

"We're honored that Passion Planet and HHMI Tangled Bank Studios have once again entrusted us to release a film of such significance and power. Complex ideas are made accessible in The Serengeti Rules so that moviegoers can see how little things can affect our planet in a big way," Abramorama CEO Richard Abramowitz said in a statement.

The Serengeti Rules is produced by David Allen, and executive produced by David Guy Elisco, John Battsek and Dennis WC Liu.
