Roadside Attractions has acquired Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go For It, the new documentary about EGOT winner Rita Moreno. The film, which debuted at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, will be released June 18 in theatres.
PBS’ American Masters will present the U.S. broadcast premiere of the documentary sometime after the theatrical release.
Directed by Mariem Pérez Riera, the film chronicles Moreno from her early years in Puerto Rico through her childhood as an immigrant in New York City and the racial bias she faced in the studio system, while breaking down barriers and overcoming sexism and identity discrimination with integrity.
