Torres (“Orianne,” “Habana Eva,” “Woman on Top”) also wrote the screenplay.
“Liz in September” stars Venezuelan actress Patricia Velasquez, whose previous work includes the Showtime series “The L Word” and “The Mummy” franchise.
Pic sees Liz (Velasquez), an adventurous and confident gay woman faced with an illness that threatens her life. Aware of her appetite for a challenge, yet oblivious to her illness, her friends dare her to seduce the lovely and straight Eva (Eloisa Maturen).
“Bringing ‘Liz in September’ to U.S. audiences is an honor and a pleasure,” said Wolfe Releasing co-president Jim Stephens. “Fina Torres is an incredibly talented filmmaker and I know American audiences are going to fall in love with this film.”
CMG president Edward Noeltner, said: “Fina and the amazing cast have created a very special film that lingers for days on the viewer’s mind and is sure to find the same success internationally as it has in Venezuela.”
