Oscilloscope nabs rights to Holocaust doc
'A Film Unfinished' to open Aug. 18 in New YorkOscilloscope has acquired North American distribution rights to Yael Hersonski's Holocaust documentary "A Film Unfinished."
The doc, which premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival, is the story of a Nazi propaganda film made about Jewish life in the Warsaw ghetto. Oscilloscope will open the pic Aug. 18 on a single New York screen, add a second Manhattan venue two days later and expand distribution during subsequent frames.
"This movie really affected me," Oscilloscope head Adam Yauch said. "It's an incredibly powerful film, not just because of the rare Nazi propaganda footage it shows but also the captivating way the filmmakers tell the story."
