SnagFilms is set to distribute Eugene Jarecki's Sundance winner "The House I Live in" (Grand Jury Award) and Jay Bulger's SXSW winner "Beware of Mr. Baker" (Grandy Jury Award). "The House I Live In" exposes what's wrong with America's war on drugs, while "Beware of Mr. Baker" is an intimate story of the legendary speed freak drummer Ginger Baker.

Richard Abramowitz's Abramorama ("Exit Through the Gift Shop") will release the two films theatrically, while Snag's digital distribution is expected to cover key VOD platforms and an eventual ad-supported release on snagfilms.com. Jarecki wants to reach as many Americans as he can with the October 5 release of "The House I Live In."

Snag is also adding six acclaimed documentary titles to its burgeoning library of over 3,300 films;, including Academy Award-winners "Harlan County USA" and "American Dream‚" Oscar-nominated and Emmy winner "Waco: The Rules of Engagement," Peabody winner "The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg," Sundance Audience Award winner "Fuel‚" and "Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg." Snag will hold exclusive digital rights for specific SVOD and ad-supported platforms.

SnagFilms' Rick Allen states: "We've heard a lot about Dream Teams recently, but the year's top two documentary winners, plus six time-honored titles, constitutes the Doc Dream Team. We are honored to be bringing them to wide audiences."
