UK-based distributor Dogwoof has acquired Alma Har’el‘s upcoming feature LoveTrue¬†for worldwide sales.

The film, currently in post-production, examines the notion of true love through three stories, which weave together personal recollections from the main characters, and evocative scenes with non-actors that play the central characters’ older and younger selves.

Dogwoof, which also served as UK distributor for Har’el’s award-winning Bombay Beach, will also be the UK distributor for LoveTrue, while also acting as its worldwide sales agent.

“I had the best time working with Dogwoof on the Bombay Beach release in the UK and couldn’t be happier when they came on board to support LoveTrue so early in the game,” Har’el said in a statement. “Their focus and understanding of the non-fiction world is unrivalled.”

“Alma is a unique, visionary filmmaker and a trend-setter,” added Vesna Cudic, head of sales for Dogwoof. “We know Alma will create an exquisite and unforgettable cinematic experience that will transcend documentary and draw in a wider, fiction audience.”

The director, along with executive producer Shia LeBeouf, will present excerpts from a film at a special “work in progress” screening during the Tribeca Film Festival, on April 16. The festival runs from April 15-26.
