Seventh Art lends an ear to ‘Listen’ at IFP

Docu follows rock group around L.A.

Seventh Art Releasing has bought world rights to “Won’t Anybody Listen,” following its final screening at this year’s IFP Market. This is the company’s second acquisition at the IFP Market after the recent purchase of “The Big O.”

The feature docu is a work-in-progress by Dov Kelemer that follows rock group NC-17 over a seven-year period in the Los Angeles music scene. The film also includes A&R execs, journalists, and other industry insiders giving their points of view on the music business.

The deal was negotiated between Mark Litwak on behalf of Kelemer and Jennifer Grossblatt, VP of business affairs for Seventh Art Releasing.

Seventh Art has also just signed on to Jennie Livingston’s first dramatic feature “Who’s on Top?” which was seen at last year’s IFFM. Steve Buscemi is attached to the project, which will be produced by Shelley Spevakow, head of acquisitions and development at Seventh Art, and Ruth Charny. Mary Kuryla is currently polishing the script.
