April 13 2004 12:00 AM ET
Wellspring has acquired worldwide rights to Jonathan Caouette's documentary Tarnation and will also provide funds to help him finish the film, according to indieWIRE.com. Executive-produced by John Cameron Mitchell and Gus Van Sant, Tarnation is an intimate autobiographical documentary that tells the story of Caouette's coming-out and of his mother's struggle with schizophrenia. Caouette says the film, which screened in the Frontier section of the 2004 Sundance Film Festival following a premiere at the New York Lesbian and Gay Experimental Film and Video Festival, cost him $218.32 to produce using Apple's iMovie software. Tarnation is set for a theatrical release later this year, to be followed by a video and DVD, also from Wellspring.
