2022 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Daina O. Pusic’s Tuesday
It says a lot about a project when the extremely fastidious cinematographer (Silent Light, The Florida Project) Alexis Zabé decides to embark on a given film. With a decade’s worth of short films (her 2015 short The Beast and 2016 short Rhonna & Donna both premiered at Telluride), the Croatian-born, London trained Daina O. Pusic launched her debut feature film this past summer with a cast comprised of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lola Petticrew, Arinzé Kene and Leah Harvey. Tuesday is a Cinereach funded, A24 distributed film that should be ready for 2022 — it sounds like a rather radical mother-daughter fairytale with plenty of dark matter and a Macaw parrot. Perfect for any festival that considers itself edgy.
Gist: This is about death, Death, suicide, murder, mother-daughter rapport.
Production Co./Producers: Stray Bear Productions’ Ivana MacKinnon, Gingerbread Pictures’ Helen Gladders, Record Player Films’ Oliver Roskill.
Prediction: WORLD CINEMA DRAMATIC COMPETITION.
U.S. Distributor: A24.
