Nova Scotia has approved funding for a documentary film called Assholes: A Theory.

The film by A Rude Film Inc. has been approved for $236,911 in funding based on an eligible Nova Scotia expenditure of $816,935, according to a news release from Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI).

The film appears to be an adaptation of the best-selling 2014 philosophical book of the same name by Aaron James.

The funding comes from the Nova Scotia Film and Television Production Incentive Fund, which replaced the province’s film tax credit after it was controversially axed by the government in 2015.
