Tugg, a web platform that allows moviegoers to vote on what appears at their local cineplexes, is partnering with Lionsgate's Codeblack Films on making Shola Lynch's TIFF documentary "Free Angela & All Political Prisoners" available to screen nationwide. The film opens in select cities on April 5, and is available through Tugg for special theatrical screenings outside of the planned distribution locales.

The film focuses on the turbulent life of political radical Angela Davis, a UCLA professor, member of the Communist party and associate of the Black Panthers who was charged with conspiracy in kidnapping and the murder of a Santa Monica judge in 1970. Davis supporters include Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, who presented the film at its Toronto world premiere.
