First Run acquires Phil Ochs documentary

Early 2011 theatrical release is planned

First Run Features has acquired “Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune,” a documentary about the folk singer from Michael Cohl's S2BN Entertainment.

The doc was produced and directed by veteran filmmaker Kenneth Bowser, whose credits include "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls: How Sex, Drugs & Rock and Roll Saved Hollywood"; "John Ford/John Wayne: The Filmmaker and The Legend”" and "Preston Sturges: The Rise And Fall Of An American Dreamer."

The film, which will have its world premiere at the upcoming Woodstock Film Festival, will be released theatrically early next year.
