We learned back in April that racial profiling was among the reasons that Trouble the Water, this year's Best Documentary Winner at the Sundance Film Festival, had not acquired a theatrical distribution deal
more than two months after its Park City triumph. Nearly two months after that, the folks at Zeitgeist Films today announced their pick-up of the film for release this summer. "We are absolutely thrilled to have acquired this brilliant documentary which has a dramatic trajectory most narrative features would envy," Zeitgeist co-president Nancy Gerstman said about Trouble, which follows an African-American couple en route to new lives after leaving the post-Katrina ruins of New Orleans. All's well that ends well, we suppose: The film will open for an Oscar-qualifying week in Los Angeles and New York on Aug. 22; Zeitgeist previously won a doc Oscar in 2002 for Nowhere in Africa.
