Following its world premiere at BFI London Film Festival in October 2018, MARI will be released UK wide by Verve Pictures. MARI is writer and director Georgia Parris’ debut feature.
Boldly combining the power of dance and cinema, MARI tells the story of a professional dancer & choreographer Charlotte (Bobbi Jene Smith), as she prepares for a new show. Uniquely using the poetic expression of dance to drive the narrative, Charlotte’s world is turned upside down when she discovers she’s pregnant and her grandmother Mari is coming to the end of life, forcing her to confront her past to choose the future she wants.
We’re delighted to be supporting the UK release, by coordinating non-theatrical screenings and special events in creative dance spaces across the UK this June onwards.
