Factory 25 has acquired world rights to writer-director-editor Sophia Takal’s “Green,” which won the Chicken & Egg Award at the SXSW Film Festival in 2011. The specialty distributor has scheduled a September 7 theatrical release in New York and Chicago, followed by a VOD release in November.
“Green” explores the roots and results of jealousy in the story of a New Yorker who moves to the country with her boyfriend and how their relationship is changed by the friendships they each develop with a blue-collar local girl. Kate Lyn Sheil, Takal, Lawrence Michael Levine, Louis Cancelmi, Alex Ross Perry and Robert Malone star.
Lawrence Michael Levine produced; Matthew L. Weiss and Robert Malone co-produced.
Brooklyn-based Factory 25 has recently released “The Color Wheel,” “The Oregonian,” “Convento” and “Until The Light Takes Us.” Forthcoming titles include “The Other Side of Sleep” and “Shit Year.”
