FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 28, 2016 – It was announced today that Elle Driver will be selling BELOW HER MOUTH worldwide, excluding North America, Cinetic Media will represent the film in the US and Elevation Pictures will distribute in Canada.
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.
The film was shot with an all women crew, written by Stephanie Fabrizi, directed by April Mullen and produced by Melissa Coghlan. It stars Canadian actress, Natalie Krill and Swedish model, Erika Linder in her first acting role.
In Linder’s first-ever photo shoot, she posed as a young Leonardo DiCaprio, which marked the start of a versatile career path. In Linder’s own words, she has “too much imagination to be just one gender.” Her authentic androgynous image has landed her a Tom Ford campaign and spreads in Vogue Italia with Steven Meisel and Michael Comte, Self Service Magazine with Mario Sorrenti, Elle Magazine and Marie Claire. She has starred in music videos for Katy Perry and Of Monsters and Men.
Natalie Krill began her career as a dancer, training with the Alberta Ballet and the Vancouver Goh Ballet Academy.
