Circle Collective formed in June 2019 in order to provide a new avenue for and community around creative distribution as an artist-forward, feature film marketing and distribution consulting agency. In partnership with OCN, Circle Collective will begin to release contemporary indie cinema across a variety of genres and origins onto physical media, maintaining the same artist-forward perspective as in their theatrical campaigns. Vinegar Syndrome’s sister company, OCN Distribution, is thrilled to be representing this diverse and unique home video line!

Sex, drugs, and a dysfunctional family create the perfect storm for Donny Drucker’s Bar Mitzvah. We are catapulted back in time to the year 1998 as we follow a colorful array of characters from the perspective of a hired videographer. Donny tries to enjoy the evening while juggling his crazy mother, his teenage angst, and his new girlfriend Handjob Hannah. Meanwhile Gearld, the MC of the party, is on a mission to stop the notorious party pooper Val Dho who is attempting to ruin the party. All that, plus: scandalous affairs, love triangles, spin the bottle, and a man with ranch dressing for hands. But as per tradition, all must be resolved before the big song at the end of the night.

Framed as a found footage home movie and shot entirely in 4x3 to look just like your home movies from the 90s, Donny's Bar Mitzvah is a wild and raunchy coming of age comedy that mixes the familiar with the absurd, including cameos from Danny Trejo and Waldo himself. Not for the faint of heart or easily offended, see the film that The New York Times calls "horny" and has been met with confusion and derision from your local rabbi.
