The company will begin sales on Brian Welsh’s debut feature at Berlin; Curzon Artificial Eye to release in the UK.
High Point Films has secured international rights to Brian Welsh’s debut feature, In Our Name, which premiered at the BFI London International Film Festival.
The story of a servicewoman in the British Army struggling to adjust to life back home after a tour of Iraq, its lead Joanna Froggat picked up the Most Promising Newcomer at this week’s BIFA awards, which took place on Dec 5.
Produced by Michelle Eastwood, In Our Name has been financed by the National Film and Television School and BBC Films, together with Curzon Artificial Eye, who will release in the UK on December 10.
Mel Raido and Chloe Jayne Wilkinson also star in the film, which has been endorsed by charity Combat Stress.
High Point’s managing director Carey Fitzgerald said it was “as articulate and powerful a film as you’re likely to see coming out of the UK about war and its aftermath this year. “
“The combination of Joanne Froggatt’s intensely compelling performance and Brian Welsh’s talent as writer and director definitely make In Our Name worth looking out for,” he added.
High Point will begin international sales on the film at Berlin in Feburary.
