ABOUT
In Dirty God, a young mother from London must pick up the pieces in the aftermath of an acid attack that leaves her with disastrous scarring.

Living in a looks obsessed world, and without that as her currency, Jane must move on with her new life, personal difficulties, and the unfortunate occurrences of everyday humiliation. Channeling her real life trauma, actress Vicky Knight (a burn victim herself, in a stunning debut performance) brings an emotional depth to an uncompromising story about human resilience.

Dirty God is an international co-production with Michael Elliott’s EMU Films (UK), A Private View (Belgium) and Savage Productions (Ireland). Financial support for the film was provided by funds including the Dutch Film Fund, the Netherlands Production Incentive, the British Film Institute, BBC Films, the Flemish Audiovisual Fund, Screen Ireland and Eurimages.

Dark Star Pictures will release DIRTY GOD with a virtual release through Laemmle Theaters in LA, Gateway Film Center (Virtual) in Columbus, and more theaters to be announced on November 13, 2020. The film will also be made available on digital platforms such as iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Fandango Now, Direct TV, and through local cable providers on December 15, 2020. The film has a running time of 104 minutes and will not be rated by the MPAA.
