A National Theatrical Release Here in the United States?

This film looks to be a wonderful, realistic, well-thought-out, non-exploitative portrayal of people of the Diné (Navajo) tribe in this country (Arizona, New Mexico, Utah) directed by an up-and-coming Navajo-American film director, Sydney Freeland.

It has played @ the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Utah [January], the 2014 Sundance London Film Festival [April], Won the Outfest Film Festival Award for "Best U.S. Dramatic Feature" in L.A. [July], and has played many times in Poland, San Francisco, California, Gallup, New Mexico, (free showings from the Director's own hometown) Portugal, France, Greece, & Canada

I am just curious if anyone thinks that this film might ever get released theatrically here in the States either this year or next?

I know that as of today, August 11, 2014, it has yet to be submitted to the M.P.A.A. for a rating, and that is an important step to being released theatrically.

I would say that this film, more than likely will be rated "R" by the M.P.A.A.

Has anyone seen this film at any of the various showings or listened to the Q & A sessions following those sessions?

Would anyone think that there is a good chance that this movie might be released theatrically, or through the Sundance Channel on T.V., or a very limited release in special theaters, or simply direct-to-DVD/Video-on-demand releases?
