Brought up in the self-sufficient, all-female, forest community of The Flock, Selah (Raffey Cassidy) has only ever known the teachings and guardianship of Shepherd (Michiel Huisman), the group’s leader. After local authorities threaten their continued existence, The Flock move inland, and Selah begins to have disturbing visions that challenge her faith in Shepherd. A slow-burning examination of life in a cult, The Other Lamb also dissects broader questions about what it means to believe in something. Małgorzata Szumowska’s English-language debut competed for awards at Toronto International Film Festival, San Sebastián International Film Festival, and the London Film Festival.
The screening will be followed by Q&A with Małgorzata Szumowska.
