Oscilloscope Laboratories, a New York based film production and theatrical distribution company, has snapped up the US rights to BANANAS!*.
Oscilloscope was launched in 2008 by Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, who modeled the company after the indie record labels that he grew up around, choosing films and then marketing them with the same artistic integrity with which they were made. The company, which is an extension of Yauch’s recording studio of the same name, has an in-house DVD distribution and production arm, and the paper packaging is reminiscent of the heyday of LP record jackets. All of the company’s DVD packaging is (free of any plastic) printed on FSC Certified 80% post-consumer waste paper and produced in a carbon neutral, hydroelectric, ISO- 9001 and ISO- 14001 certified plant.
Other films on Oscilloscope include Scott Walker: 30 Century Man, directed by Stephen Kijak and Oscar nominee Burma VJ, directed by Anders Østergaard and co-produced by WG Film.
