EmptyFilm download site Jaman.com has signed a deal with Arts Alliance America to bring Morgan Spurlock's "Super Size Me," among other films, to the platform.
In addition to "Super Size Me," the partnership will bring films from the Arts Alliance's "Morgan Spurlock Presents …" line of programming to Jaman. These are films with a socially conscious bent picked by the documentarian and Arts Alliance America president Joe Amodei and include "Class Act," "Future of Food" and "Confessions of a Superhero."
Other films included in the deal are "Conversations With Other Women," starring Aaron Eckhart and Helena Bonham Carter, "Never Forever," starring Vera Farmiga, and "Tully."
Jaman, based in San Mateo, Calif., focuses on the digital distribution of independent and foreign films. In January, it announced a deal with TiVo that will bring its library to DVRs.
Jaman also has signed distribution deals with Fortissimo Films, Trust Film, Fortune Star and Dreamachine. Earlier this month, it acquired several titles from BBC Worldwide America.
