Adam Yauch's Distributor Picks Up Michel Gondry Doc

May 28, 2009  |  1:15pm
Adam Yauch’s fledgling indie distribution enterprise Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired Michel Gondry’s new documentary, The Thorn in the Heart, which examines the French auteur’s aunt and her life in rural France.

The recent Cannes premiere is the second doc by Gondry, who also made the exuberant, sadly undervalued Dave Chappelle's Block Party in 2005. It’s expected to open later this year.

Oscilloscope continues to forge itself as a brand name, with well-regarded titles like Wendy and Lucy already under its belt.
