Kaleidoscope Film Distribution (KFD)and XYZ Films announced today that Gravitas Ventures has acquired multiple territories, including the U.S., Australia and South Africa to Kyle Rideout’s Public Schooled.

When he falls in love with a popular one-legged girl (Williams), he abandons his mother’s (Greer) suffocating love and enrolls in public school, getting a crash course in sex, drugs and social mayhem.  Epstein produced the film, with Adam Folk co-producing and Justine Whyte executive producing.
