Director Alma Har’el, known for blurring lines between documentary and fiction, previously worked with LaBeouf on a Sigur Rós music video.
London-based Dogwoof has acquired worldwide sales rights to award-winning director Alma Har’el’s new documentary LoveTrue, currently in post production and executive produced by US actor Shia LeBeouf.
Dogwoof previously worked with Har’el in 2012 for her debut feature Bombay Beach - which won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at Tribeca Film Festival in 2011 - acting as UK distributor.
This latest feature will see Dogwoof representing the film as worldwide sales agents as well as UK distributor. It will bring LoveTrue to the Cannes Marché next month as part of its sales slate.
LeBeouf, star of Transformers and Fury, was directed by Har’el in her most recent music video for Icelandic band Sigur Rós, Fjögur píanó, in 2013.
Har’el and LeBeouf will present exclusive first clips from LoveTrue at Tribeca on Thursday (April 16).
The film tells a three-part tale of different love stories in starkly contrasting American landscapes, using non-actors to play the subject’s younger and older selves.
Producers are Alma Harel, Christopher Leggett, Rafael Marmor and Rhea Scott. Associate producers are Fady Salame and Hannah Bombelles.
Dogwoof head of sales Vesna Cudic said she anticipated the film would “transcend documentary and draw in a wider, fiction audience”.
