WILD DAZE to Premiere on the Laemmle Virtual Cinema
Light Productions and Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) announce the release of the feature documentary WILD DAZE, debuting Friday, September 18 until October 25, 2002 on eight Virtual Cinema showcases. Since these unprecedented times called for new alliances and though this new film would have been shown live in theatres were it not for the mandatory pandemic closures, the filmmaker partnered with independent filmmakers to virtually debut WILD DAZE.
Though the film can be seen online anywhere, the Virtual Cinema partner venues are located Boston, Oxford, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Tacoma, Phoenix, Boulder and Detroit. Here are the WILD DAZE Virtual Cinema Site partner links: https://watch.eventive.org/wilddaze.
Fifty percent of all proceeds will support the participating independent theaters and WILD DAZE conservation advocacy programs.
“WILD DAZE is an extremely relevant documentary that explores the threats humans pose to wildlife,” said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s Executive Vice-President of Acquisitions. “Phyllis not only dove into the corruption, the deforestation, the bush meat trade and the exploding human population threatening the wildlife, but she also beautifully captured the animals in their natural habitats while giving a voice to the many passionate people who work tirelessly to save them from the many threats they face.”
Cinedigm Corp. has acquired the North American rights to WILD DAZE and will release the documentary on Digital and DVD on October 27, 2020.
Five years in the making and filmed across 9 countries, the feature-length documentary WILD DAZE depicts the dire threats facing African wildlife. Since human beings are dependent on nature when we work to save nature and non-humans, we are really working to save ourselves. Since human survival hangs in balance, we must decide whether we see ourselves as superior, as custodians, as entitled consumers or as a part of a delicate ecosystem. This powerful cinematic call to action demonstrates the dire challenges facing species who depend on biodiversity, including our own.
Through interviews with conservation experts ranging from Dr. Jane Goodall to wildlife trophy hunters, filmmaker Phyllis Stuart explores the relationship between international crime cartels, colluding government officials, animal poaching, the illegal ivory trade, cattle barons and human beings, as she examines how rampant corruption complicates the fight to save species nearing extinction.
