Deep in the woods, an all-female cult is presided over by a single man in this haunting folk horror from acclaimed director Małgorzata Szumowska (NEVER GONNA SNOW AGAIN, BODY, MUG, ELLES). Selah, a devoted young believer on the brink of maturity, finds her faith tested when dark visions begin to reveal the fates awaiting the women as they age. Starring Raffey Cassidy (VOX LUX, THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER) and Michiel Huisman (GAME OF THRONES), Szumowska’s English-language debut is eerily beautiful and stunningly crafted, imbued with cut-throat tension.
The film, received its World Premiere at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and its UK Premiere at the BFI London Film Festival, is directed by Polish auteur Małgorzata Szumowska and is produced by Academy Award®-nominee David Lancaster and Stephanie Wilcox together with Aoife O’Sullivan and Tristan Orpen Lynch and Danish producer Marie Gade Denessen .
