The Punk Singer gets distro in the UK

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Sini Anderson’s documentary The Punk Singer about legendary frontwoman Kathleen Hanna is to rock and roll into British cinemas after inking a deal with Dogwoof.

The Punk Singer is a documentary about Bikini Kill and Le Tigre front woman, creator of the Riot Grrrl movement and feminist icon Hanna.

Anderson uses interviews with Hanna cut in with footage and music from the bands, as well as interviews with fellow musicians including Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, Adam Horowitz from the Beastie Boys and Joan Jett, to create a portrait of the unique and revolutionary artist.

The deal was brokered by Dogwoof head of distribution Oli Harbottle with Autlook Films managing director Salma Abdalla on behalf of international sales agent Films Transit.

The film is set for U.K. theatrical release May 2014, Dogwoof said.
