LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - September 17, 2013) - Today Vision Films, a worldwide distributor of independent feature films, documentaries and music programming, announces the acquisition of "Sunset Strip," a documentary about the famed street in Hollywood, written/directed/produced by Hans Fjellestad, produced by Joe Mundo, Tommy Alastra, Donovan Leitch and executive produced by Matt Sorum.
Lise Romanoff, Vision Films Managing Director and CEO of Worldwide Distribution, inked the deal with 13th Sign Pictures' Tommy Alastra and Joe Mundo. Vision Films will be releasing "Sunset Strip" digitally in the U.S. and Canada this November, and will be screening the film for distributors in all other territories around the world at MIPCOM and the AFM.
"This film is the definitive story of Sunset Strip, the epicenter of pop culture," commented Lise Romanoff. "It covers everything that has happened on "the Strip" -- from the nightclubs of the glamorous Golden Era, the excesses of the Punk and Rock N' Roll scene, the Stand-up Comedy explosion, through decadence and untimely deaths, up to today's newest musical acts."
A historical journey through the "most storied street on the planet," "Sunset Strip" features interviews with numerous A-list musicians, actors, comedians, and celebrities, including Slash, Johnny Depp, Keanu Reeves, Mickey Rourke, Sharon Stone, Ozzy Osbourne, Courtney Love, Alice Cooper, Hugh Hefner, Perry Farrell, Peter Fonda, Clive Davis, Dan Aykroyd, Sofia Coppola, Tom Arnold, Richard Lewis, Carmen Electra, Paris Hilton, Lou Adler, Tommy Lee, Duff McKagan, Dave Navarro, Billy Corgan, Robbie Krieger, Method Man, Lemmy, Paul Mooney and many more.
In late November, "Sunset Strip" will be available for instant streaming and download to U.S. audiences via iTunes, Xbox, Playstation, Amazon, Vimeo and other digital platforms. In addition to digital access, the film will also be available to audiences on DVD; a special edition is earmarked for early 2014.
