indieWIRE reports that Lions Gate Films has picked up worldwide distribution rights to Rize, a documentary directed by fashion photographer David LaChapelle. Monetary details on the deal have not been disclosed. Rise blows the lid off the Los Angeles-based phenomena known as "krumping", in which performers dance at super-human speeds, often whilst dressed as clowns.

Meanwhile, according to the Associated Press, LaChapelle was arrested in Park City this weekend on "suspicion of disturbing the peace", for allegedly participating in a shoving match outside of a party.
