Gravitas Ventures has acquired U.S. rights to “The Rise of Jordan Peterson,” a feature documentary directed by Patricia Marcoccia about the controversial Canadian psychology professor-turned-YouTube philosopher.

Marcoccia charts the rise of Peterson, who in 2016 sparked outrage and support for his stand against political correctness and Canadian human rights legislation, leading to his popularity as a global intellectual.

Peterson’s 2018 book “12 Rules For Life,” has been published in 50 languages and sold more than 3 million copies.  His YouTube videos are nearing 150 million views.

“The Rise of Jordan Peterson” is set to rollout in theaters and on-demand on October 29.
