IFC Midnight has released a new clip for the upcoming feature, “The Other Lamb,” directed by Malgorzata Szumowska. The clip sees the eerie makings of a cult in what is taken from a 2017 Black List script. It stars Raffey Cassidy (“The Killing of A Sacred Deer,” “Vox Lux”), Michiel Huisman (“The Invitation,” “Game of Thrones”) & Denise Gough (“Colette”).
The official synopsis is as follows:
For her entire life, the cult she was born into has been all that teenage Selah (Raffey Cassidy) has known. Along with a band of similarly cloistered young women she lives seemingly unstuck in time, cut off from modern society in a remote forest commune presided over by a man called Shepherd (Michiel Huisman), a controlling, messiah-like figure with a frightening dark side. But when her insular world is rocked by a series of nightmarish visions and disturbing revelations, Selah begins to question everything about her existence—including her allegiance to the increasingly dangerous Shepherd. Awash in images of primal, dreamlike dread, this provocative fable is a haunting vision of adolescent awakening and revolt.
In 2013, Szumowska won the Teddy Award for her film, “In the Name Of” from the Berlin Film Festival. Her narrative films include “Stranger” “Mug” and “Body,” which garnered her Berlin’s Silver Berlin Bear and the Golden Reel Award from the Association of Polish Filmmakers Critics Awards in 2015. Szumowska has also produced and directed documentaries such as “Nothing to Be Scared of” and “Mój tata Maciek.”
Szumowska’s upcoming feature debuted at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival and was later acquired for distribution by IFC Midnight in October. The distributor is best known for rolling out genre titles including “The Autopsy of Jane Doe,” “Greener Grass,” “The Babadook,” “Ghost Stories” and “Knives and Skin.”
“The Other Lamb” is distributed by IFC Midnight and is landing on VOD April 3. Check out the poster and latest clip below!
