The film is written by Hannah Kent, and produced by Sarah Shaw and Anna McLeish for their Australian outfit Carver Films. Executive producers are Nate Bolotin, Maxime Cottray, Nick Spicer and Aram Tertzakian of XYZ Films, Deanne Weir, Olivia Humphrey, Jack Christian, D.J. McPherson, Daina Reid, Sarah Snook, Jake Carter and Katie Anderson
The first in-person Sundance since 2020 gets underway today, running until January 29.
