Alexandros Avranas's Miss Violence on DVD in July

2 July 2014

On the day of her birthday, eleven-year-old Angeliki jumps off the balcony and falls to her death with a smile on her face. While the police and Social Services try to discover the reason for this apparent suicide, Angeliki’s family keep insisting that it was an accident. What is the secret that young Angeliki took with her? Why does her family persist in trying to “forget” her and to move on with its life?

Directed by Alexandros Avranas, Miss Violence was widely acclaimed at the Venice Film Festival, winning Best Director and Best Actor (Themis Panou). The film is an intense, provocative, unsettling and masterfully controlled watch, showcasing precision filmmaking at its best.

Described by Sight & Sound as "Extraordinary," by Total Film as "A gripping masterwork" and Indie Wire as "One of the most powerful experiences we've had in a theatre for a long time", Miss Violence will be released on UK on 7th July 2014 by Metrodome Distribution at the RRP of £12.99.

Unsurprisingly, perhaps, no extra features have been announced.
