Menemsha Films Acquires Umedia’s ‘Dough’

PARIS — L.A.-based Menemsha Films has acquired all North-American right to John Goldschmidt’s dramedy “Dough.”

Repped by Umedia, “Dough” is set to open the 35th San Francisco Jewish film festival on July 23, ahead of its theatrical release.

Set in London’s East End, “Dough” tells the story of an old Jewish baker (Jonathan Pryce,”Game of Thrones”) whose failing business gets an unexpected boost when his young Muslim apprentice (Jerome Holder) accidentally drops cannabis into the dough and the chollah starts to fly off the shelf.

Menemsha’s founder and prexy Neil Friedman described “‘Dough’ as an endearing film with great breakout potential.” Friedman added, “The film is very funny with a tender cross-cultural friendship at its core, beautifully showcasing our shared humanity.”

“Dough” is produced by Docler Entertainment’s György Gattyán and András Somkuti, Viva Films’ John Goldschmidt and Three Coloured Dog Films’ Wolfgang Esenwein.

The U.K.-Hungarian co-production was penned by Yehuda Jez Freedman and Jonathan Benson.
