Factory 25 takes ‘Francine’

Melissa Leo vehicle to bow at MoMA this week

Brooklyn-based distributor Factory 25 has picked up North American rights to Melissa Leo starrer “Francine,” set for a weeklong run at Gotham’s Museum of Modern Art beginning Wednesday.

A narrative feature co-written and co-directed by documakers Melanie Shatzky and Brian M. Cassidy, “Francine” world preemed earlier this spring at the Berlin Film Festival and has since played fests including SXSW and Deauville.

Storyline centers on a woman (Leo), recently released from prison, who begins a new life in a small town and has difficulty connecting with the people around her. Marietta Hanley, Brendan Burke, Robert J. Meredith and Danica Brodehead also appear in the film.

Produced by Joshua Blum and Katie Stern as well as exec producer Anna Gerb, “Francine” will be released theatrically by Film Sales Co. (also the sales rep for the pic), with the MoMA run preceding screenings around the country later in the fall. A Factory 25/FSC co-release on VOD and digital will follow Nov. 1, with DVD on tap for spring 2013.
