Director James Marsh and actor Clive Owen
Irish/UK feature film ‘Shadow Dancer’ has been selected to screen at the Premiere Section at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival (19 – 29 January).

Set in 1990s Belfast, ‘Shadow Dancer’ is based on Tom Bradby’s novel – who also penned the script. The thriller follows a young mother who is arrested in London following an aborted IRA bombing attempt who must either choose to inform on her family or spend the rest of her life behind bars.

The film is directed by Oscar winning filmmaker James Marsh (Project Nim, Man on Wire) and cast includes Clive Owen (Children of Men, Inside Man), Gillian Anderson (The Last King of Scotland) and Andrea Riseborough (Never Let Me Go, W.E). Irish actors include Aidan Gillen (Love/Hate, Game of Thrones) and Domhnall Gleeson (Sensation, True Grit).

Speaking on the selection, Irish producer Ed Guiney of Element Pictures said, “After a brilliant experience at Sundance last year with ‘The Guard’ we are looking forward to launching James' wonderful film to the world at the festival this year.”

’Shadow Dancer’ was shot on location in Dublin during May 2011. Cinematographer on the feature is Rob Hardy (Blitz, Boy A), with costumes by Lorna Marie Mugan (Treasure Island, Intermission) and production designer Jon Henson (Last Chance Harvey, Boy A).

The film is a co-production between Unanimous Entertainment, Element Pictures and French WildBunch Production in association with LipSync Productions. It is funded by the BBC, BFI, UK Tax Credit, WildBunch, Section 481 and the Irish Film Board.

’Shadow Dancer’ joins other Irish pic ‘Grabbers’ in the Sundance selection which was announced last week. Further info available from www.sundance.org
