Award-winning 20-minute WWII psychological thriller “Glass Darkly” directed by Dave Penner (USA) has been confirmed for the next IndieX Film Fest live screening, July 2nd, at Raleigh Studios Hollywood.
Set in 1941 in Holland, “Glass Darkly” revolves around the chilling true story of two Dutch sisters who must deal with the turmoil of their Nazi-occupied town. A remarkable cinematic period piece with the challenge of mixing graphic violence with a compelling dramatic core.
“If there’s one thing all of us key members hope audiences will get out of this film, it’s simply to stay true to yourself. These were young girls that chose to do what was right, no matter the consequences or the scorn they received from society for doing so (and surprisingly for them, there was a lot). The reason many of us are here is because of people who had that kind of courage”, states director Dave Penner.
During the red carpet event, and after the screening of the film, Dave Penner will participate in a Q&A.
“Glass Darkly” was awarded Best Short of the Month in the season of August 2021 and is a IndieX annual nominee for Best Women Short, Best Director (Male), Best Ensemble Cast, Best Cinematography and Best Original Score in the 2021 Annual Awards which winners will be announced next September 11th.
“Glass Darkly” joins “Old Time Radio“ by Academy Award winner Joel Harlow (USA), “Hometown Boys” by Jamie Sutor (USA), and “Once A Sinner” by Andrew Barahona (USA) in this special screening in July, which will gather one more film (to be announced soon).
