Jason Becker: Kino Lorber buy right to Jason Becker movie

New York, NY – November 12, 2012 – Kino Lorber, Inc. (www.kinolorber.com) is proud to announce the acquisition of all North American rights to Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet, a moving documentary about maverick guitarist Jason Becker, a legend in the US music scene who has lived with Lou Gehrig’s Disease, or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), for the last two decades. http://www.deadline.com/2012/11/jason-becker-not-dead-yet-documentary-kino-lorber-acquisition/

Kino Lorber’s Vice President, Elizabeth Sheldon, who negotiated the deal with Ana Vicente from the U.K-based Dogwoof commented: “The adjectives ‘tragic’, ‘powerful’ and ‘heart-breaking’ don’t do justice to Jesse Vile’s near-perfect film. Vile’s portrait invokes far more than pity, with its inspirational story of the tragedy endured by both Becker and his family. The film is a true testament to the power of the human spirit and artistic talent.”
