EXCLUSIVE: Here’s the debut clip for Listen, the UK-Portugal drama that premieres in Venice’s Orizzonti section this year.
Directed by Ana Rocha de Sousa, the pic follows a Portuguese immigrant family in London battling to keep their family together after social services try to separate them.
Producers are Paula Vaccaro, Rodrigo Areias and Aaron Brookner. Worldwide sales are being handled by Magnolia Pictures International.
“Listen felt urgent to me, not only as a filmmaker but also as a mother. The shapes and shades of the different sides of a story, like a dance between right and the wrong, really interested me,” said director de Sousa. “Listen is a painful journey in how we see, what we judge or believe and what is actually real.”
