Random Media and Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) are releasing $ELLEBRITY on DVD on June 24th. $ELLEBRITY was made available nationwide on VOD and other digital platforms in January 2013.
With candid interviews from celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kid Rock, $ELLEBRITY offers unique insight into America’s intense fascination with celebrity culture and the ever-changing face of fame. Directed and produced by veteran rock-n-roll photographer Kevin Mazur, the film premiered at the SXSW Film Festival to rave reviews. Featuring interviews and clips of more than 20 well-known faces, $ELLEBRITY is a must watch for those interested in the symbiotic relationship between the press, the public’s obsession with fame, and the business of it all.
Synopsis: Renowned Rock n’ Roll photographer Kevin Mazur has pulled together an impressive team for his first feature-length documentary about the changing face of celebrity and the many ways that the media has conveyed, defined and even demeaned what it means to be famous today. Taking a historical ride through the early days of Hollywood and the rise of the paparazzi, $ELLEBRITY explores how fame has changed from the highly-structured studio system to the current free-for-all press and paparazzi frenzy.

I am a huge fan of documentary films, so I was excited to check out $ELLEBRITY. I like that the documentary offers different perspectives of celebrity photography. You get to hear first hand accounts from not just the celebrity themselves, but also from the photographers and even consumers who are fascinated by celebrities. I thought the film did a great job mapping out the complex relationship between the tabloids and the celebrities they create (and sometimes help destroy too).
