“The Ringmaster,” an award-winning documentary about one man's quest to make a chef and his onion rings world famous, has sold its US and Canadian distribution rights to 1091. The indie studio, formerly known as The Orchard, has acquired digital rights and plans to release the film this fall.

The documentary, directed by Molly Dworsky and Dave Newberg, chronicles the outrageous, years-long journey of Las Vegas filmmaker Zachary Capp and his attempts to catapult chef Larry Lang’s beloved onion rings from Worthington to world fame. The film features an eclectic cast of interview subjects and special cameos from legendary glam rockers KISS and the Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis.

“The Ringmaster” is a Capp Bros. Production in association with Asteroid and Space Metals Recovery. It recently screened at the Oscar-qualifying Doc Edge Festival in New Zealand. The film has won top awards at Festival of Cinema NYC and DOC LA.

1091 previously released the Academy Award® nominated films “Life, Animated” and “Cartel Land.”

“We’re excited to bring such a unique, fun story out into the world and can’t wait for people to learn about ‘The Ringmaster,’” said Emma Manfredi, 1091’s Manager of Film Distribution.
