Objects – Watch the trailer for the documentary about three people who have grown profound emotional connections with different objects

Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group, has acquired North American VOD rights to the documentary feature film OBJECTS, which will be available to rent/own on all digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms in North America, starting on October 3, 2023, through Freestyle Digital Media.

OBJECTS is a documentary that profiles three people who have grown profound emotional connections to things they came upon, accidentally, at pivotal moments in their lives and have held onto ever since. The film features NPR correspondent and former Radiolab co-host Robert Krulwich, who has kept a clump of grass for fifty years, author Heidi Julavits, who has preserved the sweater of a dead French actress, and graphic designer Rick Rawlins, who has safeguarded a forty-year-old sugar egg for four decades. OBJECTS is a playful rejection of the minimalist lifestyle movement, examining the motivations behind the human desire to hold on to things, despite the societal pressure to downsize possessions. The interwoven stories of the three main subjects challenges the notion that holding onto things is inherently negative, and ultimately reveals how the act of preserving things can help us hold on to our place in the world, maintain a sense of self and identity and perhaps even stave off the inevitable toll of time.

OBJECTS was written, produced, and directed by Vincent Liota, with Sally Roy serving as Executive Producer.“OBJECTS underscores the power of cherishing simple, everyday items as touchstones to our personal history,” said filmmaker Vincent Liota. “In a landscape dominated by blockbuster franchises and special effects extravaganzas, we are delighted that Freestyle Digital Media is offering viewers a celebration of the mundane yet meaningful objects that enrich our lives.”

Freestyle Digital Media negotiated the deal to acquire OBJECTS directly with Glen Reynolds of Circus Road Films.
