Silver Haze (15)

Dir. Sacha Polak
2023 | 103 mins| UK
Vicky Knight, Esme Creed-Miles, Charlotte Knight


Sacha Polak’s captivating and intimately crafted drama, SILVER HAZE, delivers a powerful and emotionally charged depiction of working-class life in Britain, featuring Vicky Knight (DIRTY GOD) in an award-winning performance that is both revelatory and magnetic.

23-year-old Franky leads a life dedicated to caregiving, juggling her duties as a nurse while being the backbone of her tumultuous family in East London. Internally, Franky harbours deep-seated anger stemming from a traumatic childhood fire that left her scarred. However, her life takes a transformative turn when she develops a connection with her patient Florence. The two embark on a journey to Florence’s coastal hometown, where an open-minded and supportive patchwork family welcomes them. In this new environment, Franky finds the emotional sanctuary she desperately needs to confront the demons of her past.

SILVER HAZE draws its inspiration from Vicky Knight’s own childhood experiences, where she survived an arson attack. Her remarkable performance in the film earned her the prestigious Teddy Jury Award at the Berlin Film Festival.
