The Film Arcade and Gravitas Ventures have acquired rights to Miranda Bailey’s documentary “The Pathological Optimist,” centered on anti-vaccination crusader Dr. Andrew Wakefield.
The film will be released theatrically by the Film Arcade on Sept. 29 followed by a VOD release via Gravitas later this year.

The wind and sun power industries are viable and becoming profitable enough to be adopted, plus the word is out.. in
