Noomi Rapace in You Won't Be Alone

Writer-director Goran Stolevski’s supernatural horror film starring Noomi Rapace, You Won’t Be Alone, will make its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival as part of the World Cinema Dramatic Competition in January 2022. Some predicted this would premiere in the Midnight section where horror and darkness usually find their home, but it’s selection for the Competition speaks of its elevated genre class.

The film is produced by Causeway Films’ Kristina Ceyton and Samantha Jennings and Causeway’s record with supernatural and horror arthouse is strong, including The Babadook, The Nightingale, Cargo and Buoyancy.
