New York-based distributor Abramorama has acquired the North American rights to Matt Hinton’s documentary about 90s indie rock band Luxury.
Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury follows the band from small-town Georgia who, on the verge of success, suffered a bad highway collision. In the following years, the members of the band have continued to make records as three members of Luxury have become Eastern Orthodox priests. The documentary infuses archival footage and interviews to tell the story of Luxury and documents the making of their new record.
Parallel Love took home the “Best of Fest” award at The Covellite International Film Festival in Butte, Montana.
In recent years, Abramorama has distributed a number of music-driven documentary films, including Ed Sheeran’s Songwriter, Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church and Matangi / Maya / M.I.A.
Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury will open at the Roxy Cinema in New York City on May 15.
