2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Beth de Araújo’s Soft & Quiet

2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Beth de Araújo’s Soft & Quiet

Only a couple of months shy from going into production with Josephine, a project that is financed, backed by a notable producer (RT Features), and was workshopped at the Sundance Labs, Beth de Araújo didn’t let the pandemic get in her way and she quickly shifted to another project for her directorial debut. Soft & Quiet is micro-budgeted drama that was informed by the very real racism that is embedded in the Red, white and blue. Olivia Luccardi plays the film’s lead in what could be a radical inventive take on this social woe – we won’t spoil the chosen visual template here.

Gist: This follows a female white supremacist indoctrinating a group of women and together they set out to harass two mixed-raced sisters.

Production Co./Producers: Saba Zerehi
