Vancouver-based producer/distributor Pacific Northwest Pictures (PNP) has acquired all Canadian rights to the Michael Caine-narrated doc My Generation. Directed by David Batty (Maggie and Me) and co-written by Ian La Frenais (Porridge) and Dick Clement (The Bank Job), the doc is based on Caine’s (The Dark Knight) personal accounts and follows the cultural changes that took place in 1960s London, U.K. The feature made its premiere at Venice Film Festival in 2017. PNP picked up the doc from U.S.-based Gravitas Ventures, a division of Red Arrow Studios. PNP will open the film in a number of theatres across the country including Toronto’s Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema (beginning Sept. 29), Vancouver’s Vancity Theatre (Sept. 11 to 15) and Ottawa’s Bytowne Theatre (Oct. 1 to 4). The Canadian distributor will also partner with TVA Films to distribute the film in Quebec. My Generation will be released by Gravitas in the U.S. on Aug. 14. Producers on the doc include Caine, Clement, La Frenais, Simon Fuller (American Idol) and Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly (Lady Macbeth). James Clayton (Closer) is an exec producer.
