Sundance To Feature 'This Must Be The Place'

Filmed on location in Ireland last year, This Must Be The Place, directed by Paulo Sorrentino and co-produced by Irish production company Element Films will have its North American premiere at the renowned Sundance Film Festival next month and will now join the Irish features Grabbers and Shadow Dancer in the festival line-up.
The film which was backed by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board (IFB) boasts a host of stars including Academy Award winners Sean Penn (Milk, Mystic River) and Frances McDormand (Fargo), alongside Irish talent Simon Delaney (Zonad, Happy Ever Afters), Olwen Fouere (Ballykissangel), Kerry Conlon (Rome) and newcomer Eve Hewson, daughter of U2 singer Bono.
It tells the story of Cheyenne (Sean Penn), a wealthy former rock star living in Dublin, who embarks on a quest to find his father's persecutor, a Nazi war criminal hiding out in the US.
It is an Irish-Italian co-production between Irish production company Element Pictures and Indigo Film and Lucky Red in Italy and had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. The film was financially supported by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/ Irish Film Board, Eurimage, Medusa, Indigo Film, Intesa Sanpaolo Bank and ARP Selection France.
The Sundance Film Festival, which was originally founded by Robert Redford, is world-renowned as a showcase for the best in new independent cinema and will take place January 19th - 29th 2012.
