Four Lions:
In official competition at Sundance

 

Warp Films are pleased to announce that Chris Morris' Four Lions, has been officially selected for the World Cinema Dramatic Competition at Sundance, the key annual international event for independent cinema, which takes place in Utah from 21st - 31st January

''On millennium eve, five jihadis planned to ram a western naval vessel with a launch full of bombs. In the dead of night they slipped their boat into the water. They stacked it with explosives. They stepped in. It sank.

In real life, the close up business of terrorism can be shot through with farce.

Cells are driven by the same group dynamics as football teams and stag parties.  

Four Lions is based on three years of meetings with imams, community leaders, moderates, radicals, police, security services, ex mujahideen and a wealth of surveillance material from major trials.  

It plunges us beyond the headlines into a cell of authentically daft “self-start” British jihadis.

Bristling with verbal jousting and large scale set pieces, their story spirals into a farce of certainties, confusions, errors and bombs. Outlandish but authentic, Four Lions understands its characters as human but knows that humans are innately ridiculous.''

 

Director: Chris Morris

Screenwriters: Chris Morris, Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain

Cast: Riz Ahmed, Arsher Ali, Nigel Lindsay, Kayvan Novak
