New acquisition: XY Chelsea

We’re pleased to announce the acquisition of the historic story on whistle blower Chelsea Manning, XY Chelsea.

Produced by Pulse Films, filmmaker Tim Travers Hawkins was granted exclusive and intimate access to Chelsea after her release from military prison; the result is an unique perspective on one of the defining public figures of the last decades.

XY Chelsea tells the historic story of whistleblower Chelsea Manning, whose 35-year sentence in an all-male maximum security prison was commuted by President Obama in 2017. XY Chelsea is the journey of her fight for survival and dignity, and her transition from prisoner to a free woman.

The film will be released in the US by Showtime in the summer summer with a UK release on 24 May.
