Rolling Pictures is proud to announce our involvement with film “Sweetness in the Belly” starring Dakota Fanning. The film has begun production in Ireland and will continue in Ethiopia. The film will be directed by Zeresenay “Zee” Berhane Mehari and co-produced by Sienna Films’ Jennifer Kawaja and Julia Sereny and Alan Moloney and Susan Mullen from Parallel Films.

 

“Sweetness in the Belly” is based on the novel written by Camilla Gibb. It follows Lily, a refugee living in London. As a child, Lily was orphaned in Africa and experiences her parents’ homeland in England as a refugee escaping a civil war.

 

“As lost in this cold new world as her fellow immigrants, Lilly becomes the heart of this disenfranchised community in London, attempting to reunite people with their scattered families. But as her friend Amina discovers, Lilly’s mission isn’t purely altruistic and a passionate lost love affair is revealed between Lilly and Aziz, an idealistic doctor.”

Other cast members include Wunmi Mosaku and Kunal Nayyar (“The Big Bang Theory”).

We are proud to be part of a big production and will be handling all aspects of post-production from dailies and data management to picture and sound, to final delivery. We are excited to get into the nitty-gritty of post-production in such a big production.
