Cinema Libre Grabs Rights to 'Lemon' Doc Ahead of NY Int'l Latino Film Festival Screening

Cinema Libre Studio has acquired all North American rights, minus broadcast, to the documentary “Lemon,” directed and produced by Laura Brownson and Beth Levison. “Lemon” will next screen August 18 as the closing-night film of the New York International Latino Film Festival, followed by DVD and VOD releases October 16 and a broadcast premiere on the PBS series “Voces” October 19 for Hispanic Heritage Month.

Executive produced by Russell Simmons, Stan Lathan and Dan Cogan of Impact Partners, “Lemon” takes a look at the life of New York poet and playwright Lemon Andersen, who left a life in prison to find his voice through poetry and win a Tony award. The film had its premiere at the Zurich International Film Festival and subsequently screened at the DOC NYC Festival, where it won a special jury prize. Spike Lee, Kanye West, Mos Def and Talib Kweli make appearances in the film.

Cinema Libre’s Philippe Diaz and Richard Castro negotiated the deal with Andrew Herwitz of The Film Sales Company.

Cinema Libre Studio has released “Fuel,” “The End of Poverty,” “London River” and “South of the Border.”
