Captured Light, Goldwyn nab 'GhettoPhysics'

Distributors plan Oct. release in 12 cities for provocative doc

TORONTO -- Captured Light and Samuel Goldwyn Films have picked up the William Arntz and E. Raymond Brown political documentary "GhettoPhysics: Will the Real Pimps and Hos Please Stand Up?" for an October release.

The twin distributors have scheduled theatrical dates in 12 cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and Washington, D.C., for the provocative film.

"GhettoPhysics" features interviews with Dr. Cornel West, Ice-T, KRS-One, Too Short, John Perkins and Norman Lear on the interplay between pimps and prostitutes, and how that power dynamic explains wider political and corporate relationships in the U.S. and abroad.

Samuel Goldwyn and partner Roadside Attractions earlier struck gold with the hybrid documentary "What the Bleep Do We Know!?," directed by Arntz, Betsy Chasse and Mark Vicente, which did over $11 million in boxoffice.

Arntz's latest documentary has its genesis in fellow filmmaker E. Raymond Brown's novel "Will the Real Pimps and Hos Please Stand Up: Peeping the Multi-leveled Global Game."
