New York-based distributor Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American rights for Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher’s medical-focused doc Off Label (pictured).

The film, billed as presenting “a lyrical and alarming view inside the medicine cabinets of America,” will be released by Oscilloscope theatrically in the U.S. and across all digital platforms on August 9.

It focuses on stories of drug testing subjects, Big Pharma representatives, and a range of American’s living with prescriptions for psychotropic drugs such as Adderall, Ambien, Zoloft and Prozac.

In a joint statement, Oscilloscope’s co-presidents Dan Berger and David Laub said: “Mike and Donal have created an unflinching look at an important subject, and their adept direction ensures that no matter how infuriating this information is, the film always remains touching and emotional.”

Filmmakers Palmieri and Mosher added: “It’s a privilege to have Off Label on such an outstanding roster, and an honor to be working with a company that consistently demonstrates their great taste, open-mindedness and support for risk-taking films.”

The film was produced by Anish Savjani and Vincent Savino of Filmscience, and by Michael Palmieri and Donal Mosher of Wishbone Films.
