Punk Murder Documentary Hitting Theaters

(PR) The documentary film The Gits has been confirmed for theatrical release on July 7, the 15th memorial anniversary of death of lead singer Mia Zapata.

For all you unfamiliar with the band of the same name, this is the story of the Seattle punk band led by lead singer Mia Zapata who was senselessly murdered with the band on the brink of breaking.

While this is indeed a tragic story, The Gits is a truly moving and loving documentary that is also uplifting and hopeful even after many years Zapata's death was thought to be unsolvable. This July, The Gits will receive national theatrical screenings in selected cities throughout the US and Canada along with a DVD release around the same time.
