Jan. 12, 2020 (TORONTO) Lofty Sky’s new feature documentary, Ask No Questions, will make its world premiere at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, UT, when it runs from Jan. 24-30.
The film tells the story of a former Chinese state TV insider who is held in a brainwashing camp and compelled to accept the official narrative on a fiery public suicide, which he believes was a government plot.
Slamdance programmer Jeffrey Radice describes Ask No Questions as being “as close to Black Mirror as you’ll find in non-fiction,” a “topical, necessary, and important film” that left him “mesmerized.”
From Canadian directors Jason Loftus and Eric Pedicelli, it is one of nine films that will appear in competition as part of Slamdance’s 2020 Documentary Features lineup.
“Ask No Questions leads into allegations of nefarious activity at governmental scale,” says Radice. “Evidence is credibly presented, shocking, and thorough,” he says, adding that the film “lands squarely in the center of the human rights debate surrounding the People’s Republic of China today.”
“We’re thrilled to be part of Slamdance. It has such an excellent track record of identifying great films and filmmakers,” says director and producer, Jason Loftus. “We can’t wait to share the film.”
Ask No Questions will screen twice the festival at the Slamdance festival venue in Park City, the Treasure Mountain Inn. Tickets for both shows are available at Slamdance.com:
- Sat, Jan 25th, 10:30 AM @ Gallery
- Wed, Jan 29th, 6:00 PM @ Ballroom
