Western Canadian Premiere. Magali Simard (TIFF) writes: “One of the boldest and sexiest dramas of the year, April Mullen’s ‘Below her mouth’ tells the story of an unexpected romance between two women whose passionate connection changes their lives forever.” We would like to add the words ‘most courageous’ to that sentence.
Jasmine (Natalie Krill – ‘Remember’) is a successful fashion editor living with her fiancé. On a night out with her best friend, she meets Dallas (Erika Linder, a Swedish fashion model in real life), who owns her own roofing company and is recently out of a relationship. Jasmine is taken by surprise when Dallas confidently hits on her; she turns Dallas down, but can’t get her out of her head.
Stephanie Fabrizi’s screenplay powerfully explores what happens when two women fall hard for each other. Shot with an entirely female crew, ‘Below her mouth’ smashes all kinds of ‘rules’. Director, April Mullen (‘Gravytrain’ and ‘Rock, paper, Scissors : The Way of the Tosser’) is an EIFF alumni and we are so proud to welcome her back for an audience Q&A following this screening.
