The Silence of Mercy is the story of a woman who chooses a life enclosed to face her personal demons, as she’s challenged to break the walls of morality. The film is directed by avante-garde visual artist and filmmaker Floria Sigismondi (The Handmaid’s Tale, American Gods, The Runaways). Her body of highly creative work spans film, music, art, and photography. The screenplay is written by Chris Basler and was included on the 2019 GLAAD List, which recognizes the most promising unmade LGBTQ-inclusive scripts in Hollywood.
The film stars Annabelle Wallis (Peaky Blinders, The Mummy) as Brigid and Raffey Cassidy (The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Snow White and the Huntsman) in the role of Arild, who provokes a journey of discovery.
