Silver Salt Films have released a first look image from Welsh director Prano Bailey-Bond’s debut feature and Sundance 2021 Official Selection, Censor. The film stars multiple IFTA winning actor Niamh Algar as the film’s lead ‘Enid’, with the film opening the Festival’s Midnight strand.
Britain, 1985. When film censor Enid discovers an eerie horror that speaks directly to her sister’s mysterious disappearance, she resolves to unravel the puzzle behind the film and its enigmatic director – a quest that will blur the lines between fiction and reality in terrifying ways. Steeped in glorious 1980s aesthetics, Censor is a bloody love letter to the VHS ‘video nasty’ horror classics of the past.
The film also stars Michael Smiley (Jawbone, Kill List), Vincent Franklin (Gentleman Jack, Bodyguard), Nicholas Burns (Ghost Stories, Nathan Barley), Adrian Schiller (Victoria, The Last Kingdom) and Sophia La Porta (Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral, Been So Long).
Censor was developed by the BFI, Film4, Creative England via the BFI NETWORK and Ffilm Cymru Wales, and was funded by the BFI and Ffilm Cymru Wales, both awarding National Lottery funding, and by Film4, with support from Kodak Motion Picture and Cinelab London. Protagonist Pictures is handling world sales.
