We’re happy to report that two Screen Scene posted films have been selected to have their world premieres at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.

Dirty God

Directed and co-written by Sacha Polak, ‘Dirty God’ is a powerful drama about a young woman in South London attempting to rebuild her life after an acid attack leaves her with severe facial burns.

Newcomer Vicky Knight, a real life burns survivor, stars in the lead role as Jade. From the official synopsis:  “Her face has been reconstructed, but her beauty is gone. Distanced from her daughter, Jade finds solace in the hidden world of online liaisons where she uncovers the passion and connection she’s craved. But when her life is turned upside down once more, those around can do little to halt her descent. As her family life and friendships start to crumble, Jade takes drastic action, finally finding the path back to her daughter and herself.”

Shooting the Mafia  

Directed by by Kim Longinotto and produced by Niamh Fagan for Lunar Pictures unflinching feature documentary Shooting the Mafia, explores the stark reality of life, and death, under the Corleonesi Mafia.

“Photographer Letizia Battaglia stood up to the Mafia and it is through her lens that we enter this world of ritualised slaughter, omertà, semi-religious oppression and feudal control. The scale of the mafia’s brutality and power is revealed through a combination of rare archive footage, newsreel and personal photographs and memories. The power of Letizia’s photography and the bravery and dedication of people like her helped to finally bring to an end the brutal reign of a bunch of small town thugs who’s reign of fear reached as far as the Italian presidency.”
