New York, NY February 25, 2021 – Greenwich Entertainment announced today the acquisition of North American distribution rights to Moby Doc. The documentary, directed and edited by Rob Bralver, will be released by Greenwich in theaters and on digital platforms across the country on May 28.
Moby Doc is a surrealist biographical documentary narrated by Moby as he reflects on his turbulent personal life and iconic music from underground punk bands to chart-topping solo artist, and from struggling addict to vegan activist. The film features interviews with David Lynch, David Bowie, and Shepard Fairey along with extraordinary concert footage, utilizing a unique blend of re-enactments, interviews, and archival footage, audiences will be treated to an insightful, unvarnished look at an artist who has sold more than 20 million albums, an activist who has long championed animal rights, and a man whose traumatic childhood shaped him in profound ways. This introspective journey sets out to answer existential questions of purpose and meaning by examining a life of extreme highs and lows, joy, tragedy, success and failure.
“In making Moby Doc, Rob and I had two goals,” said Moby. “The first was to make a truly unique music film and the second was to make a film that’s unabashedly honest and vulnerable.’
Moby Doc was produced by Rob Bralver and Jeff Broadway (Living on Soul) with Moby as an executive producer and Marty Bales, Eric Harle, and Dave Tomberlin as co-producers. Greenwich’s Andy Bohn negotiated the deal with 30WEST on behalf of the filmmakers.
