CODEBLACK FILMS & TUGG WANT YOU TO JOIN THE MOVEMENT AND STAND UP FOR SOCIAL CHANGE BY HOSTING "FREE ANGELA AND ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS" AT YOUR LOCAL THEATER 

Bring this Compelling Documentary to Host Your Own Event at the Theater

Austin, TX--- March, 25, 2013---Tugg, Inc. (www.tugg.com), a web-platform that enables individuals to choose the films that play in their local theaters and create their own theatrical events, and Codeblack Films, a Lionsgate company, are excited to announce that Free Angela is available to screen nationwide through Tugg.  Free Angela and All Political Prisoners is a powerful account of Angela Davis, the University of California philosophy professor who became a political icon during the tumultuous 1960s. The film will open exclusively in select cities at AMC Theatres on April 5th and is available through Tugg for special theatrical screenings nationwide.

"We're incredibly excited to empower individuals and groups across the country to host their own screenings of this gripping and inspirational film.  Free Angela is a perfect film for local communities to rally around and participate in a conversation about social justice that is still relevant today," said Tugg co-founders Nicolas Gonda and Pablo Gonzalez.

"Codeblack Films is pleased to partner with Tugg to provide our community the opportunity to see this incredible documentary film Free Angela and All Political Prisoners in cities where it will not be released in theaters.  Much like Angela Davis used her voice and the voices of others for change, our initiative with Tugg will allow individuals the ability to come together and share a common experience. We hope that everyone takes the opportunity to join the revolution and take advantage of this unique program," said Jeff Clanagan, CEO of Codeblack Films.
