Creativity Capital are very pleased to see the world premiere of its very own ‘Looted’ at Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival and being awarded the FIPRESCI Award presented by International Federation of Film Critics!
Looted tells the story of Rob, who loves driving and stealing cars, living his life at a hundred miles an hour in the cash-starved port town he calls home. He shares a house with his dying father, who thinks he’s out job hunting. Rob manages to keep his two worlds perfectly separated until best mate Leo get him involved in a bigger, riskier job, which goes terribly wrong. With his relationship with his distant father in shreds and betrayed by his best mate, unexpected hope comes from Leo’s girlfriend, Kasia.
The Jury at Black Nights 2019 commented: ‘FIPRESCI jury decided to award a powerful film, which stood out by its amazing energy, engaging performances and social context’.
Produced by Jennifer Eriksson and Jessie Magnum, and directed by Rene Van Pannevis, Looted’s critical reception has been overwhelmingly positive. We would like to congratulate the team and everyone involved!
