First Run Features Acquires Chad Freidrichs’ Feature Documentary The Pruitt-igoe Myth

First Run Features announced today its acquisition of the award-winning documentary The Pruitt-igoe Myth from filmmaker Chad Freidrichs. First Run is planning a March 2012 theatrical launch with VOD, home video and television to follow. The deal was negotiated by Film Sales Company head Andrew Herwitz and First Run’s Marc Mauceri.

The Pruitt-igoe Myth tells the story of the transformation of the American city in the decades after World War II, through the lens of the infamous Pruitt-Igoe housing development and the St. Louis residents who called it home.

It began as a housing marvel. Built in 1956, Pruitt-Igoe was heralded as the model public housing project of the future, “the poor man’s penthouse.” Two decades later, it ended in rubble – its razing an iconic event that the architectual theorist Charles Jenks famously called the death of modernism. The footage and images of its implosion have helped to perpetuate a myth of failure,

New Release: Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune DVD

First Run Features will release Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune, a documentary film on the noted American protest singer/songwriter (or “topical” singer/songwriter, as he preferred) on DVD on July 19.

The life and career of the legendary protest singer/songwriter is examined in Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune.

Over the course of a meteoric music career that spanned two turbulent decades, folk performer Phil Ochs sought the bright lights of fame and social justice in equal measure, a contradiction that eventually tore him apart.

The 2010 movie features extensive archival performance and interview footage of Ochs, as well as scenes reflecting the turbulent political climate of the 1960s during which he emerged as a spokesperson on causes such as racial injustice, political oppression, the horrors of war and labor issues.

The film includes interviews with family members and many of the artists and activists who knew him from

Singer-songwriter Phil Ochs documentary, details, preview

Texas born Phil Ochs was a significant personality back in the 1960s and partly in the early 70s. His music was politically charged, and many music historians agree he was an underrated songwriter during the Vietnam War era. Ochs' story is now chronicled in a passionate documentary that.s opening across 60 markets nationwide on March 4th. "Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune" takes a look at protest singer-songwriter Phil Ochs, whose prolific writing during the 1960s took a turn downward, as Ochs' mental health faltered in the 1970s, succumbing to bipolar disorder and alcoholism. Phil killed himself at the age of 35 in 1976. Sean Penn, Joan Baez, Christopher Hitchens and others offer their

Review: 'Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune' Makes An Interesting Life Seem Average

Review: 'Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune' Makes An Interesting Life Seem Average
Despite fan backlash at his decision to go electric, Bob Dylan has had it pretty good, especially by comparison. Any average Joseph on the street could tell you who he is and probably hum a tune or two, whereas his politi-folk peers were largely forgotten. Dylan was able to transcend; artists like Phil Ochs, subject of documentary "Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune" by "Easy Riders and Raging Bulls" director Kenneth Bowser, were not so lucky and mostly forgotten. Labeled as the "anti-Dylan" not only for his radically different singing style but also for his penchant towards undisguised topical protest…

5 Films To See In January

January is a terrible month for film-goers. There is just no way around it.

December films expanding wider:

I Love You Phillip Morris (Jan. 7th)

Rabbit Hole (Jan. 14th)

[Wff Review] Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune

Not unlike Alex Gibney’s Eliot Spitzer doc Client 9, Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune closely studies a public figure from rise to fall, the difference between the two works, of course, being the depth of each subject’s plunge. Spitzer resigned (and now has an adorable-looking anchor spot on CNN), Ochs committed suicide.

Both became relevant personas in their respective professions, politician and musician. Neither the most famous, but both well known and equally influential. And both men who let their hubris get the better of them.

Directed by Kenneth Bowser (Easy Riders, Raging Bulls) and produced by Michael Ochs (the deceased’s brother), There But For Fortune (the title of one of Ochs’ more popular politically-fused folk tunes) treats the late singer-songwriter as a lost gem from America’s most turbulent, passionate generation.

Ochs is painted as both a reluctant leader and a blind follower, for the hippie
