Century City-based Cinedigm unveiled on Monday a seven-week screening series that will include seven documentaries shown at theaters across the country, including several in the Los Angeles area.
The Docurama series begins April 22 and will include the documentaries “G-Dog,” “Viva Los Antipados,” “The World Before Her,” “The Fruit Hunters,” “Charge,” “Ping Pong” and “London: The Modern Babylon.”
The films will be shown at five area Laemmle Theatres, including outposts in Pasadena and North Hollywood. Cinedigm Chief Executive Chris McGurk said that the series will mark the first time each of the seven pictures will be screened for the public outside of a film festival.
The series is named for Docurama Films, the documentary label of New Video Group, a New York-based distributor of independent films, television shows and other media that Cinedigm acquired in April 2012. McGurk said that his company had eyed the Docurama label before acquiring New Video.
