There’s been much discussion about the lack of decent roles written for women and about the fact few major movies have been directed by women. However, Below Her Mouth has turned the male-dominated paradigm on its head, with a movie about women, where the entire crew was also female.
It’s just been revealed, via Variety, that the movie is getting a US release on April 28 release in cinemas and on VoD, through distributor Gunpowder & Sky Distribution. It’s already playing in major cinemas in Canada, and screening at film festivals around the world, having premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last September.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘BELOW HER MOUTH is a bold, uninhibited drama that begins with a passionate weekend affair between two women. Dallas, a roofer and Jasmine, a fashion editor, share a powerful and immediate connection that inevitably derails both of their lives.’
April Mullen directed the movie from a script by Stephanie Fabrizi. “‘Below Her Mouth’ offers a fresh, raw and honest look into the electrifying connection between two people through the female gaze,” Mullen comments. “I’m thrilled to share the film with U.S. audiences and celebrate love is love.”
