‘Silver Haze’ trailer finds love on the road to justice

Dirty God director Sacha Polak’s drama Silver Haze is finally coming to cinemas after running the film festival gamut, and there’s a new trailer to gear you up for it.

Set in East London, the film follows 23-year-old nurse Franky (Vicky Knight), who is still navigating the physical and emotional impacts of a traumatic arson attack from her childhood. She wants justice. When she falls for her patient, Florence (Esmé Creed-Miles), they head for Florence’s hometown on the coast, where her family life feels much more supportive and stable than Franky’s — and it might be just the right space to finally process it all.

Knight won the Berlinale’s Teddy Jury Award and was nominated for BAFTA Breakthrough Brit and a British Independent Film Award for her performance, which actually draws on her own childhood experience of surviving a deliberately started fire.

Silver Haze premiered last year at the Berlin Film Festival before screening at the BFI London Film Festival, and will hit cinemas in the UK and Ireland March 29 — U.S. release TBC. Before then, you can catch it at BFI Flare: London LGBTQIA+ Film Festival.
