"We are really excited to be working with Małgorzata Szumowska on this unique psychological story that will put you on the edge of your seat," said Susan Wendt, managing director of TrustNordisk.
The film tells the story of Selah (Raffey Cassidy), a young girl born into a repressive cult. The members of the Flock – all women and female children– live in a rural compound, and are led by one man, known only as Shepherd (Michiel Huisman). Selah, a daughter who is on the cusp of teenage-hood, is an incredibly devoted follower, but begins to bond with Sarah (Denise Gough), an outcast wife who has grown skeptical of Shepherd’s teachings. Selah is given the great honor of participating in the sacred ritual of the birthing of the lambs - upon which they depend for survival - where she has a shocking and otherworldly experience. She begins to have strange visions that make her question her own reality, and everything the Shepherd has taught her and her sisters.
"The Other Lamb" is produced by Rumble Films and Subotica Productions, in association with Zentropa and in coproduction with Umedia. Executive produced by Julia Godzinskaya and Will Norton of Rooks Nest Entertainment, Jon Shiffman and Andrew Schwartzberg of Rumble Films and Adrian Politowski of Umedia. The film is made with the participation of Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland and is an official Irish-Belgian coproduction.
