Magnolia Home Entertainment will release the documentary Collective on DVD and on demand Feb. 23.
Recently nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary, Collective centers on the aftermath of the 2015 Colectiv Nightclub fire in Bucharest, Romania, as Catalin Tolontan, editor-in-chief of the Sports Gazette, and his small team of sports journalists investigate the rising death toll weeks after the fatal incident.
What at first seems to be a typical case of government incompetence quickly turns into something darker as Tolontan and his team uncover the horrifying secrets the Romanian government tried to keep quiet from its citizens. From corrupt politicians and crumbling hospitals to a pharmaceutical company diluting disinfectant, the Sports Gazette exposes layer upon layer of fraud and criminal activity throughout the country’s political and healthcare systems.
Collective will be available on DVD on Amazon.com and in-stores at Barnes & Noble, and available on demand via Apple TV, Google Play, Prime Video, FandangoNow and more.
