U.S. non-profit group Women Make Movies (WMM) has picked up exhibition and educational rights to Nancy Kates’s documentary Regarding Susan Sontag (pictured).

The film, which traces the life of the late cultural critic, is being handled by WMM as part of the group’s Distribution Service, which releases films directed by women to institutions that use non-commercial, educational media in their programs.

Through the service, films are screened everywhere from media arts centers and museums to institutions such as hospitals and labor unions.

WMM will release the film beginning in March. Meanwhile, HBO – which has broadcast and digital rights – will debut the doc on December 8 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.
