CINEDIGM REVS UP AMERICAN DRESSER FOR NORTH AMERICA

Cinedigm Corp (NASDAQ: CIDM) announced today that it has acquired North American Distribution rights to the motorcycle road picture, AMERICAN DRESSER, starring Tom Berenger, Keith David, Bruce Dern, Gina Gershon, Penelope Ann Miller, Katherine Narducci, and Jeff Fahey. The film includes the original song titled AMERICAN DRESSER written and performed by Billy F Gibbons /ZZ Top and Country Rocker Tim Montana. Cinedigm will release the picture in select theaters and on digital and TV VOD on September 21, 2018, with a BLU-RAY and DVD release to follow in November.

From writer and director Carmine Cangialosi, who also stars, AMERICAN DRESSER follows John Moore (Tom Berenger), a hard-edged Vietnam veteran who is recently widowed and estranged from his adult daughters. After discovering a decades-old secret his wife kept for years, John finds himself at a crossroads and decides to confront the mistakes of his past by fulfilling a lifelong dream. He fixes up his American Dresser motorcycle and sets out on a cross-country road trip with his best friend, Charlie (Keith David). They hit the highway, exploring new territories, meeting a series of offbeat characters, and together they learn that life is about moving forward, one mile at a time.

“In quintessential American fashion, Berenger’s character takes to the open road, and by doing so, embarks upon the ride of his life to find himself and heal old wounds,” said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s Executive Vice-President of Acquisitions. “As a director to watch, Carmine skillfully blends the wild excitement, humor and energy of an open road motorcycle adventure in AMERICAN DRESSER with a deeply heartfelt story of a man finally coming to terms with his past.”

“Cinedigm’s marketing and sales teams have shown a real willingness to collaborate and think outside the box to reach audiences for this movie,” said Carmine Cangialosi. “From pursuing promotion at the upcoming Sturgis Motorcycle Rally to activating targeted social media campaigns, I’m excited about these opportunities and Cinedigm’s distribution strategy for the picture.”

AMERICAN DRESSER was produced by Carmine Cangialosi, Ryan R. Johnson, and Martin Sprock. Executive producers include Paul Barbara, Michael P. Haggerty, and Rob Moran. Billy Joel serves as a consulting producer.

The deal was negotiated by Melody Fowler, Vice-President of Acquisitions for Cinedigm, and Andre Relis, President of VMI Worldwide, on behalf of the filmmakers.
