UK distributor Limonero Films has acquired the global rights to distribute a documentary feature about the popularity of British rock band Travis.
Almost Fashionable: A Film About Travis sees music critic Wyndham Wallace invited to cover a Mexican tour of one of his least favourite bands.
Through a series of candid interviews with the band, passionate fans and other music journalists, Wallace attempts to understand the reason for his resentment. What follows is an unexpected mediation on life, friendship and the power of music.
The film is directed by Travis singer-songwriter Fran Healy and edited by Sarah Iben with cinematography from Cristian Pirjol.
Gezellig Studio produced the film in association with Final Cut USA.
Limonero acquired the global broadcast, digital, educational and in-flight entertainment rights to the film.
Healy said: “I’m delighted to be working with Limonero on my debut film. Pamela has a passion, persistence and responsiveness that shows not only in her enthusiasm toward our film, but all the films she represents.”
Pamela Martinez Martinez, MD at Limonero Films, said: “We’re delighted to represent ‘Almost Fashionable: A Film About Travis’ around the world. It´s a fun, joyful film that I’m sure will delight fans of the band and those who love music documentaries that delve deep into human emotions.
“The film is sure to surprise people by its rumination on the UK’s music journalism industry through candid and illuminating interviews.”
