The stunningly androgynous model Erika Linder moved her talents to the acting world last year, when she was featured in the Toronto International Film Festival breakout lesbian film Below Her Mouth.
Gunpowder & Sky Distribution has acquired the U.S. rights to romance “Below Her Mouth,” and is planning an April 28 release in theaters and on VOD, Variety has learned exclusively.
Shot with an entirely female crew, the film tells the story of an unexpected romance between two women whose passionate connection changes their lives forever. “Below Her Mouth” stars Natalie Krill and Erika Linder. Krill plays a successful fashion editor living with her fiancé, played by Sebastian Pigott, who meets a roofer who pursues her.
April Mullen directed from a script by Stephanie Fabrizi. The movie is a Serendipity Point production in association with Distant Horizon. It’s produced by Melissa Coghlan, shot by Maya Bankovic, edited by Michelle Szemberg and scored with music composed by Noia.
The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and went on to screen at the Festival du Nouveau Cinema, Mar Del Plata International Film Festival, and Goteborg Film Festival.
“‘Below Her Mouth’ offers a fresh, raw and honest look into the electrifying connection between two people through the female gaze,” said Mullen. “I’m thrilled to share the film with U.S. audiences and celebrate love is love.” (via Variety)
