The film, from Academy Award-nominated director Kirby Dick and producer Eddie Schmidt, will make its world premiere at Sundance Wednesday, Jan. 25 at the Eccles Theatre.

The network added that it has established partnerships with Heineken USA and Netflix Inc. for events supporting and celebrating the documentary’s release.
