UK COMPETITION: Close Quarters
Wednesday 20th January 2021
SISTERS, dir. Tanya Ronder, Louis Norris, Hector Norris
Compulsions, crushes and cravings come to a head in these portraits of social dysfunction and bad company kept.
From unsuccessful stand up to family interventions over Zoom, to the destructive dynamic between Tanoa Sasraku’s Pierrot and their whitefaced tormentor, these short works profile the clashes and near-misses of our lives overlapping with others.
With new scripted work and a lead performance from Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Black Panther), a comedic turn from Derry Girl’s Siobhán McSweeney and high drama from Hermione Norris (Spooks). Programmed by Philip Ilson. 74'
This programme contains gore and violence. Please note the film Two Single Beds can only be accessed by UK audiences at the request of the filmmaker.
Our BFI Southbank screenings go on general sale Thursday 17th December at 11am.
