Clio Barnard is in post-production on DARK RIVER.

DARK RIVER is Clio’s third feature film following the critically acclaimed THE ARBOR and THE SELFISH GIANT. The film stars Ruth Wilson and Mark Stanley and Sean Bean.

“Dark River is a visceral, haunting and lyrical story and we’re delighted to have assembled our regular collaborators to help bring Clio’s beautifully crafted script to life and welcome DOP, Adriano Goldman to the team. Ruth Wilson and Mark Stanley’s fearless commitment to the roles of siblings Alice and Joe leading up to the shoot is exciting to behold” says producer Tracy O’Riordan.

DARK RIVER is produced by Tracy O’Riordan of Moonspun Films with Left Bank Pictures’ Lila Rawlings, Andy Harries and Suzanne Mackie executive producing. Backed by Film4, the BFI Film Fund, the Wellcome Trust and Screen Yorshire. Protagonist Pictures will handle world sales.
