Abramorama has acquired theatrical distribution rights for Tao Ruspoli’s documentary “Monogamish,” which explores the history of love, sex and marriage among different societies, Variety has learned exclusively.
The film, produced by Giancarlo Canavesio, Daniel Guevara & Sol Tryon, will be released theatrically in New York on Oct. 13, followed by a limited release across the United States. The film is the second in Abramorama’s collaboration with Mangusta Productions following Raz Degan’s “The Last Shaman.”
In the film, Ruspoli is recovering from a divorce and takes to the road to talk to his relatives, advice columnists, psychologists, historians, anthropologists, artists, philosophers, sex workers, sex therapists, and ordinary couples about love, sex, and monogamy. What he discovers about his own unconventional family — along with the history and psychology of love and marriage — leads him to question the ideal of monogamy, and the traditional family values that go with it.
