Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'




Gunpowder & Sky Distribution announced today that they have acquired the US distribution rights to April Mullen’s BELOW HER MOUTH. Shot entirely with a female crew, the film tells the story of an unexpected romance between two women whose passionate connection changes their lives forever.

The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival 2016 where it went on to screen at Festival du Nouveau Cinema, Mar Del Plata International Film Festival, and Goteborg Film Festival. It will also play at BFI Flare: London’s LGBT festival in March. Gunpowder & Sky Distribution will release BELOW HER MOUTH on April 28th,
2017, theatrically and across all major On Demand platforms, including iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, Microsoft Movies & TV, Verizon FiOS, and DirecTV.

"BELOW HER MOUTH offers a fresh, raw and honest look into the electrifying connection between two people through the female gaze,” said Mullen, the film’s director. “I'm thrilled to share the film with US audiences and celebrate love is love."

In BELOW HER MOUTH, Jasmine (Natalie Krill) is a successful fashion editor living with her fiancé, Rile (Sebastian Pigott). On a night out in the city with her best friend, she meets Dallas (Erika Linder), a roofer recently out of a relationship. Surprised by the confidence with which Dallas pursues her, Jasmine turns Dallas down – but can’t get her out of her head. Dallas continues her advances over the next few days. When Jasmine finally succumbs, the two women embark on a steamy affair that forces her to reevaluate her life.

Indiewire calls the film, “a bolt of lightning…a powerful experience”; while AfterEllen says BELOW HER MOUTH is “demanding the attention of queer women ”, and Toronto Star hails it as “a film about women exploring lust on their own terms”.

"I'm a Canadian lesbian – this was a no-brainer," said Janet Brown, Gunpowder & Sky's EVP of Distribution. "Seriously, we're very happy to be partnering with such a talented, exciting filmmaking team to bring BELOW HER MOUTH across the border."

Created by and with an all female crew, BELOW HER MOUTH, was produced by Melissa Coghlan, written by Stephanie Fabrizi, shot by Maya Bankovic, edited by Michelle Szemberg and scored with music composed by Noia.

Linzee Troubh of Cinetic negotiated the sale with Jake Hanly of Gunpowder & Sky Distribution. BELOW HER MOUTH is a Serendity Point Films production in association with Distant Horizon.
