Sharon Jones Doc to Be Released Theatrically, on DVD and Digitally

Under terms of a new agreement, Starz Digital has acquired the North American distribution rights to the documentary Miss Sharon Jones!, and will give the film a limited theatrical release on July 29th, followed by a digital, on-demand and DVD release this fall.

Directed by two-time Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple (Harlem County USA, Shut Up and Sing), the film features Augusta-born soul singer Sharon Jones as she battles life-threatening cancer and continues to perform with her top-notch band, the Dap-Kings.

The film premiered to vast acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2015, and recently played at South by Southwest as well as the Sarasota Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature.
