showtimes and tickets

A Golden Bear Award nominee from the 2011 Berlin Film Festival and Official Selection of the SXSW and Deauville American Film Festivals, YELLING TO THE SKY stars Zoe Kravitz (X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, the forthcoming MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, M. Night Shymalanís AFTER EARTH) as Sweetness O'Hara, an introspective and shy teenager who tries to blend into the crowded halls of her high school. An increasingly complex home life and a growing threat at school soon carry her into a world of reckless ambivalence.

A visceral coming-of-age story, YELLING TO THE SKY features a sobering, breakthrough performance from Kravitz, with an all-star supporting cast including Jason Clarke (THE CHICAGO CODE, Kathryn Bigelow's ZERO DARK THIRTY, Baz Lurhman's THE GREAT GATSBY); Gabourey Sidibe (Best Actress Academy Award nominee for PRECIOUS, The BIG C, TOWER HEIST); Tim Blake Nelson (LINCOLN, O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?) and Antonique Smith (NOTORIOUS).

The film was selected for the Screenwriters and Directors Sundance Labs, the IFP Narrative Labs and Victoria was named to Filmmaker Magazine's annual list of the "25 New Faces of Independent Film."

YELLING TO THE SKY held its World Premiere in Competition at the 2011 Berlin Film Festival, where the film was nominated for the Golden Bear Award. Since then, the film has played at countless festivals worldwide, including SXSW, Deauville, Giffoni (Italy, where the film was awarded the Crystal Gryphon award), Guanajuato (Mexico), Mumbai, Gen Art, Film Society of Lincoln Center/ImageNation, Urbanworld and more.
