Compliance screened at SXSW 2012, now at BAMcinemaFest

After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, where it emerged as a chief conversation-starter of the fest – inspiring heated Q&As, critical acclaim, and intensely strong reactions –  Craig Zobel’s gripping psychological thriller Compliance will be making its New York premiere this Friday at BAMcinemaFest in Brooklyn. Director Craig Zobel, actors Ann Dowd and Ashlie Atkinson, and producer David Gordon Green will be in attendance.

The second feature from Craig Zobel (director of the 2007 Sundance hit The Great World of Sound), Compliance recounts this riveting nightmare in which the line between legality and reason is hauntingly blurred. The cast delivers startlingly authentic performances that make the events unfolding on screen impossible to turn away from. Delving into the complex psychology of the story that inspired the film, Compliance proves that sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction.

One of the most controversial and talked-about films at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, Compliance will be released on August 17th.
