Seventh Art Releasing has acquired worldwide rights outside the U.S. to “Bellyfruit,” the feature debut of director Kerri Lee Green.
“Bellyfruit” explores teen pregnancy through three stories inspired by the real-life experiences of young mothers.
Robert Bauer (“Scotch and Milk”) and Bonnie Dickenson (who is also part of the film’s ensemble cast) produced the pic, which preemed recently at the LAIFF.
Although “Bellyfruit” marks Green’s directing bow, the tyro helmer has accumulated a string of acting credits, including ’80s pics “Goonies” and “Lucas.” “Bellyfruit” will be released on video in the U.S.
Seventh Art, which releases about eight documentaries per year, plans to expand its roster to include four to six fiction titles as well.
