2011 Sundance Predictions: Victoria Mahoney’s Yelling to the Sky

And finally….I’d be truly disappointed if somehow this 50th prediction pick didn’t materialize, as it as “Sundance” written all over it. I sort of jumped the gun with my predictions last year by naming Victoria Mahoney’s Yelling to the Sky as a 2010 ready title. I was “off” by couple of seasons. The Sundance Lab supported filmmaker has spent 2010 deep in post-production and receive some extra support from the IFP Filmmaker Labs and was a Cinereach Sundance Institute Grantee. All that to say: 2011 will definitely be the breakout year for her directorial debut.

#50. Yelling to the Sky – Victoria Mahoney

Set in a depraved New York neighborhood, the youngest of three mixed-race sisters named Sweetness (Zoë Kravitz’s first major starring role) O’Hara, spends the better part of being seventeen navigating an identity between the known: a violent life of crime, and the unknown: a life of purpose and meaning. Supporting cast includes: Tim Blake Nelson, Gabourey Sidibe, Antonique Smith, Marc John Jefferies, Jason Clarke, Shareeka Epps, E.J. Bonilla and Gleendilys Inoa. Expect a U.S Dramatic Competition slot.

* Producers: Ged Dickersin, Diane Houslin, Billy Mulligan and Mahoney
