Starz Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights for Footpath Pictures’ doc feature Certain Proof, which follows three children with cerebral palsy and their fight for meaningful education within the U.S. public school system.
Introduced by actor Chris Cooper, the film documents the difficulties that the kids – Josh, Kay and Colin – have within the U.S. public school system, and the efforts undertaken by the children and their mothers to rectify matters.
“We always hoped the stories of Josh, Colin and Kay could reach a large audience to shed light on the importance of assuming every child’s competence,” said director Ray Ellis in a statement.
“Starz has embraced this film whole-heartily and we are overjoyed to be able to work with them to share this important story,” added producer Susan Ellis.
The film had its world premiere at the Vail Film Festival in Vail, Colorado, and its Hollywood premiere at the Dances With Films Festival.
