Tom Quinn, Jason Janego & Tim League Figure Out “Where to Invade Next”

Michael Moore might have turned a new leaf with his topical, engaging, simple and endearing TIFF premiered Where to Invade Next but so have Tom Quinn, Jason Janego and Tim League. IndieWire reports that Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO has joined forced with former RADiUS founders and co-presidents for what will be a new, unnamed distrib entity. After shepherding Laura Poitras’ Citizenfour, Quinn and Janego have landed another under the radar docu item that is set to ruffle some feathers. The current quandary is do they throw in the anchor for the 2015 calendar (measuring up against The Look of Silence, Amy and Cartel Land) or wait until a specific, more politically friendly date? Thanksgiving has been mentioned.

Gist: This follows Moore as he tries to figure out how to make America better by “invading” other countries to see how they operate and handle a wide range of social, economic and political issues.

Worth NotingDirty Wars‘ Rick Rowley was one of the two cinematographers on the docu.

Do We Care?: Our Jordan M. Smith caught the film at TIFF and called this a “gloriously buoyant piece of filmmaking with a patriotic heart of gold, guaranteed to strike the populous like a righteous reckoning beckoning for world change.
