We are happy to announce two world premieres at the Sundance Film Festival 2017 - THE NILE HILTON INCIDENT by Tarik Saleh, produced by Atmo AB in Sweden and STRONG ISLAND by Yance Ford, produced by Yanceville Films & Louverture Films in the US. Both films are co-produced by Final Cut for Real and producers Monica Hellström and Signe Byrge Sørensen will be present for the premieres at Sundance Film Festival.
THE NILE HILTON INCIDENT by the Egyptian-Swedish director Tarik Saleh has been selected for the World Cinema Dramatic Competition at the Sundance Film Festival. The feature tells the story about Noredin, a corrupt police detective in Cairo weeks before the Arab Spring in 2011.
STRONG ISLAND by Yance Ford has been selected for the U.S Documentary Competition at Sundance Festival. The documentary examines the violent death of the filmmaker’s brother and the judicial system that allowed his killer, a white mechanic, to go free. The documentary invents a startling cinematic language to penetrate a devastating collision of grief, racism, and injustice.
