Environmentally-Themed Documentary Debuts on VOD Platforms April 17th

Los Angeles, CA – March 28, 2018Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, has acquired global rights for the digital debut of the environmentally-themed documentary BEYOND THE BRINK.

BEYOND THE BRINK debuts on VOD and will be available to rent and own on digital HD across global cable, internet, and satellite platforms through Freestyle Digital Media on April 17, 2018 – just in time for Earth Day.

Created, directed, and produced by renowned documentarian, filmmaker and journalist, Jim Thebaut, BEYOND THE BRINK allows viewers to witness firsthand how California’s evolving water crisis is a growing threat to America’s national security in its capacity of providing healthy food to our nation and world. Throughout the 90-minute journey, BEYOND THE BRINK dives deep into the intricacies of the water and food nexus, while it highlights the evolving implications on a National Security threat through the lens of California’s San Joaquin Valley. California is the leading provider of dairy, produce, and beef in the United States, and BEYOND THE BRINK delves into the business of the state’s agriculture.

“I truly admire BEYOND THE BRINK and appreciate that such passionate filmmakers like Jim exist – those who spend their lives bringing to light such important topics often ignored,” said Miguel Johnson, Acquisition Manager for Freestyle Digital Media. “My team and I are thrilled to distribute BEYOND THE BRINK, and are looking forward to releasing it in April.”

BEYOND THE BRINK makes a critically important point about the precious nature of water and how it is absolutely essential to produce the food that feeds us all,” stated Karen Ross, California Agriculture Secretary. “It outlines the real world options we face in balancing water-for-food and other essential needs around the world, making it clear that we must take action now to engage the broader public on this issue. BEYOND THE BRINK is an important step in that direction.”

“California is home to one of the world’s strongest economies supported by increasingly dated water infrastructure,” explained Jeff Kightlinger, General Manager, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. “BEYOND THE BRINK captures the dangers of California’s failure to plan for the future and the unfolding water crisis in the Golden State.”
