Cinema Libre falls for ‘Disfigured’

L.A. company acquires rights to Gers drama

Cinema Libre has acquired worldwide rights to Glenn Gers’ “Disfigured,” which is making its premiere at the AFI Dallas Film Festival this week.

The film is about an overweight woman who befriends, through a Fat Acceptance Group, a real estate agent recovering from anorexia.

“With Cinema Libre, we hope to work with groups that support awareness of size diversity issues and would like to set up special screenings of the film across the country this summer,” said Gers.

Helmer penned the Diane Keaton starrer “Mad Money” and the thriller “Fracture,” starring Anthony Hopkins.

Cinema Libre Studios is a Los Angeles-based post-production, sales and distribution company that releases socially conscious features and docs.
