LOS ANGELES, CA – November 7, 2012 – Stacy Peralta’s critically acclaimed documentary film, “Bones Brigade: An Autobiography” is now the #1 documentary on iTunes in both the United States and Canada. The film is available to rent exclusively on iTunes in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Ireland at iTunes.com/bonesbrigade. The film is also available to purchase on iTunes and www.bonesbrigade.com.
"We’re having an amazing time releasing “Bones Brigade: An Autobiography” in a new and modern way that is putting on the cutting edge of independent film distribution,” says Stacy Peralta, the film’s director and mentor of the original Bones Brigade; "having the support of iTunes, which has the exclusive rental for our film, will help us reach a wider and more diverse audience, and we are stoked, honored and thrilled for their collaboration."
Andrew Herwitz, President of Film Sales Company added, “As the distribution landscape evolves, we see how audiences like to enjoy movies in different ways. While die-hard skateboarders will undoubtedly want to own the film, other film fans may well want to choose between renting and buying. iTunes offers movie fans maximum flexibility by having both options.”
A film that chronicles the greatest skateboard team ever assembled, “Bones Brigade: An Autobiography” premiered to standing ovations at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Using amazing archival footage and moving first-person accounts from Brigade members Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Tony Hawk, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, and Rodney Mullen, among others, not only does “Bones Brigade” capture the essence of a team that many grew up emulating; it also resonates for anyone who ever found a family or a purpose in an unexpected place.
Peralta’s previous films include “Riding Giants” and “Dogtown and Z-Boys.” The film will be released theatrically by Film Sales Company in association with Vans in select cities beginning November 2nd and will also be available for purchase on bonesbrigade.com
