Liza Mandelup’s indie doc feature debut Jawline has been picked up by U.S. streamer Hulu and is set to release this summer.

The 99-minute Jawline follows 16-year-old social media celebrity Austyn Tester, a rising star in the live-broadcast ecosystem, looking to escape the doldrums of rural Tennessee as he embarks on a U.S. tour to build his online following.

The film premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, where Mandelup took home the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Emerging Filmmaker.

Jawline is a Caviar production. Bert Hamelinck, Sacha Ben Harroche and Hannah Reyer served as producers, with Michael Sagol and Jasper Thomlinson executive producing.

The film will be released theatrically as a “Hulu Documentary” in key U.S. markets as well as bowing on the streaming site on Aug. 23.
