First Images For Sundance Selected Kiwi Drama SHOPPING

Simon de Bruyn, Contributing Writer
Warp Films are undoubtedly on a roll. In the past three years they've given us Kill List, Four Lions and Berberian Sound Studio. The production company's antipodean arm, based in Melbourne Australia, has also quickly stepped up to the plate, producing last year's blistering masterpiece Snowtown. Now they seem to have delivered again, with their sophomore production - the Kiwi film Shopping - selected for World Dramatic Competition at Sundance 2013.

Written and directed by Mark Albiston and Louis Sutherland, Shopping is set in New Zealand in 1981. Seduced by a charismatic career criminal, teenager Willie must choose where his loyalty lies - with a family of shoplifters or his own blood. The cast includes Kevin Paulo, Julian Dennison, Jacek Koman and Alistair Browning.

The film is the debut feature for Albiston and Sutherland after their previous short films Run and The Six Dollar Fifty Man found success at Cannes, Sundance and Berlin.

Thanks to Sundance we have the first images of the film to show you. Check out the gallery below.
