Flame Distribution ramps up for the holidays with documentaries on John Lennon and paleontology.

Fresh off of a successful showing at the first-ever APEX Asia Content Market in Singapore, Flame Distribution is gearing up for the holidays with returning series and a host of new and eclectic content offerings.

Next month marks the 39th anniversary of John Lennon’s death at the hands of gunman Mark David Chapman outside the historic Dakota apartment building in New York City. Lennon fans will be eager to watch Killing John Lennon, “a dramatic psychoanalysis and step-by-step breakdown of the lead-up to one of the most infamous assassinations in history,” said Thomas Gould, Flame’s VP, Content Sales, Worldwide Transport. “The one-hour biographical documentary also explores the life of John Lennon leading up to his murder, when he broke up with The Beatles to pursue a solo career … and as a political activist alongside his wife Yoko Ono in New York city.”

Food, art and design buffs will surely appreciate Flame’s new eight-part series, A Long Weekend in…With Rory O’Connell. A world-renowned chef and food writer, O’Connell takes viewers on a whirlwind tour of art, culture, architecture during his culinary adventures in cities like Copenhagen, Vienna and Lisbon.
