Goodwill Tour Begins With L.A. Screenings/Beverly Hills Film Festival
HOLLYWOOD, April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being released today by Paolucci Communication Arts:
What: Screening of a documentary film on the life of UFC Champion Jens Pulver. Grass roots fundraising tour to benefit youth at-risk programs. Jens Pulver, Gregory Baynes and actor Dylan Bruno will embark on the first stops of a grassroots fundraising tour to benefit local youth-at-risk programs. They are partnering with organizations, coordinating screenings of the documentary and flying to the locations to give live Q&As with at-risk youth.
"We are seeing this unbelievable groundswell of interest from people who want to have the documentary screen in their hometowns, and we are doing everything we can to accommodate them," says actor/exec producer Dylan Bruno.
When: Screenings will be held:
April 8: 8 pm at West Coast Jiu Jitsu 2945 Los Olivos # 101 Oxnard, CA 93036-8919
April 9: 7 pm at TIGER TKD/MMA Academy at 12221 Industrial Ave in South Gate
April 10: Beverly Hills Film Festival
Why: Jens Pulver battled everyday to stay alive in a home laden with severely violent physical abuse. He fought every day until he became a 2 time UFC World Champion. Gregory Bayne's documentary tells that story. Today, Jens Pulver is still battling, but not with his fists. He battles with his words and emotions that come straight from the heart. He travels the country teaching youth-at-risk that there is hope when you continually fight to make the positive choice. "If it is easy, it is usually wrong," he cautions kids who are teetering on the brink of criminal problems. He tells them about his brother who is serving a life sentence in jail for drug dealing related crime. "We both came from the same home. I'm no saint, but I made the tough choices, Dustin just gave up, and gave in."
Warner Bros. has picked up JENS PULVER | DRIVEN for North American VOD (video on demand) distribution. This means beginning July 1, 2011 the film will be available across all major cable providers, and via online VOD platforms such as iTunes, Amazon VOD, NetFlix and many others.
