2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Lance Hammer’s Queen at Sea

2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Lance Hammer’s Queen at Sea

He landed at Sundance in the U.S. Dramatic Competition with Ballast in 2008 and would end up winning the Directing Award and Cinematography Award (Lol Crawley) and would end up receiving a lot of recognition via the Gothams and Indie Spirits and then Lance Hammer disappeared from the filmmaking scene … that is until last April when he shot his sophomore feature in London with the great Juliette Binoche. While Queen at Sea could definitely look towards other A list film fests, we’re hoping for a Park City return. Binoche is featured alongside Tom Courtenay, Anna Calder-Marshall and Florence Hunt, and cinematographer Adolpho Veloso is also onboard. Production took place in London.

Gist: This revolves around a woman (Binoche) who moves back to London with her teenage daughter (Hunt) amid concern for her ageing mother (Calder-Marshall).

Production Co./Producers: The Bureau’s Tristan Goligher.

Prediction: Premieres

Sales: TBD.
