Michael Tuckman and mTuckman Media are teaming up with acclaimed director Frederick Wiseman to release the octogenarian’s latest documentary, Crazy Horse (pictured), theatrically next year.

The film will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival today before playing at the Toronto International Film Festival and New York International Film Festival.

Wiseman’s Zipporah Films and mTuckman will then launch Crazy Horse theatrically in New York City at Film Forum on January 18, 2012, followed by a national roll-out to theaters across the country.

Crazy Horse saw 81-year-old Wiseman spending 10 weeks at the iconic Parisian cabaret club, which was founded in 1951 by Alain Bernardin.

Following Wiseman’s previous docs La Danse – the Paris Opera Ballet and La Comédie-Française ou L’Amour Joué, the film completes a trilogy of docs about legendary French institutions. It is Wiseman’s 39th film in a career that began in 1967 with Titicut Follies.
