Authorized Tarantino Doc Freed from Weinstein Wreckage and Seeking Distribution

Director Tara Wood has successfully reclaimed the rights to the authorized Quentin Tarantino documentary feature21 Years: Quentin Tarantino. The film, a celebration of Tarantino's works-to-date, looks at the passion behind the worldwide box office dominator. The lightening rod that is Tarantino's career illuminates the discussion of changes in the industry.

In 2017, Wood, co-director of 2014's acclaimed 21 Years: Richard Linklater, asked The Weinstein Co. to release the documentary following the onslaught of sexual harassment allegations against company founder Harvey Weinstein. "TWC should respectfully release us from our deal," Wood said in a statement at the time, "To allow the project to be handled with the care and consideration it, Mr. Quentin Tarantino, and all the participants deserve." The company refused, and Wood embarked on a prolonged legal battle.

Now, Wood is proud to announce that the film has returned to the creative team at Wood Entertainment, and is ready to find the right home for distribution.
