Zeitgeist Films announces the theatrical release of "Koch," a documentary by Neil Barsky centering on former New York mayor Ed Koch, who governed Gotham in the down-and-dirty decade betweeen 1978 and 1989. Trailer below.
The film had its world premiere at the Hamptons International Film Festival, and recently its West Coast debut at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
The Hollywood Reporter writes, "Made with the former mayor's cooperation but allowing ample screen time to those with harsh things to say about him, Neil Barsky's Koch offers as comprehensive a picture as it can in 94 minutes of a man whose tenure merits a miniseries."
Zeitgeist is releasing the film on February 1 in NY and March 1 in LA.
