'The Naked Poet' Picked Up by ArtMattan


ArtMattan Films, the film distribution arm of ArtMattan Productions, has announced the acquisition of British dramedy "The Naked Poet" by Jason Barrett, described as a smart, heartfelt drama about infidelity and sexual desire, telling the story of Lazarus, a young poet exploring the difficulties associated with matters of the heart.

He finds himself caught up in a love triangle and confronting the painful and confusing decision of choosing between his long-term girlfriend Louise, and newfound love Simone, while dealing with his responsibilities as a father to his only child from a past relationship.

In addition to directing and producing, Barrett also stars in the film which was released in the UK in late 2016.

"The Naked Poet" had its US Premiere as the Opening Night Film of the 2016 African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) and will have its Chicago Premiere screening as the Centerpiece of ADIFF Chicago, in June 2017.
