Recently screened in the Vanguard section of the Toronto festival, the film is set in a world where women no longer need men in order to reproduce and are no longer giving birth to male babies, leaving the male population on the verge of extinction.
Sawers wrote and directed, with Patrick Gilmore, Kristine Cofsky, Tara Pratt, Cameron McDonald, Rekha Sharma, Ken Kramer, Morgan Taylor Campbell and Mary Black starring. Kaleena Kiff and Galen Fletcher produced.
Peter Goldwyn of Samuel Goldwyn Films said: “Mark has a truly original voice and made a film that is both smart and funny – and is also an incredibly interesting take on gender politics. I’m excited to have the opportunity to release it and imagine we will have a lot of fun on this campaign.”
