Abramorama has acquired theatrical rights to The All-Americans, a feature documentary from first-time director Billy McMillin about Los Angeles’ East L.A. Classic, the annual high school football game between rivals Garfield and Roosevelt high schools. Recording artist and actress Becky G serves as an executive producer on this feature-length doc from Delirio Films. It follows four students seeking glory on the field while grappling with personal obstacles and striving to make sense of their community’s place in today’s America. The pic, which is being backed by Nike, is slated for a theatrical release across the country timed to the annual East L.A. Classic November 8. Producers are McMillin, Timm Oberwelland, Rafael Marmor and Christopher Leggett. Check out the trailer:

Abramorama has acquired U.S. theatrical rights to #FemalePleasure and will release the Barbara Miller documentary beginning Friday at the Village East in New York City. The pic portrays five courageous, smart and self-determined women — Deborah Feldman, Leyla Hussein, Rokudenashiko, Doris Wagner and Vithika Yadav — who break the silence imposed by their archaic-patriarch societies and religious communities in the fight for sexual liberation and autonomy for women. There is a high price: they all have experienced public defamation, threats and prosecutions and have been excommunicated by the societies in which they grew up. The film from Mons Veneris, Das Kollektiv Fur Audiovisuelle Werke and Indi Film is produced by Philip Delaquis and executive produced by Walter Kamm, Ellen Ringier, Roswitha Shild and Melanie Winiger. Here’s the trailer:
