'Rich Hill'

Two documentaries that premiered at this year's Sundance, Grand Jury winner "Rich Hill" and Rory Kennedy's "Last Days in Vietnam," have found distribution. 

Emmy-winning TV series Independent Lens (broadcast nationally on PBS) and music distributor The Orchard are teaming for a theatrical release on "Rich Hill," which follows three teen boys living on the brink of absolute poverty in the Missouri town of the title. It is helmed by Tracy Droz Tragos and Andrew Droz Palermo. Indiewire's Eric Kohn said of the film in a B+ review, "With its constant melancholic tone, which blend voiceovers and somber asides from its characters, "Rich Hill" often feels like a Terrence Malick movie that trades majestic spirituality for burgeoning teen angst."

'Last Days in Vietnam'

Meanwhile, "Last Days in Vietnam" has found a distribution home with American Experience Films, slating a September 5 limited release. The film chronicles the final chaotic days of the Vietnam War, as North Vietnamese troops closed in on Saigon and South Vietnam crumbled. Anne Thompson loved the film, and got to interview Kennedy ("Ethel") as part of a Spotlight on Women Directors panel in Park City.
