Disclosure to premiere at
Palm Springs International Film Festival
We are thrilled to announce that the WORLD PREMIERE of Disclosure will take place in the Official Selection at the 31st Palm Springs International Film festival, USA, in January 2020.
What the festival says about Disclosure:
“In his assured and provocative feature film debut, writer/director Michael Bentham accomplishes a very difficult thing: he creates an intense adult drama that takes place in one location. Unlike predecessors such as 12 Angry Men or Rear Window, this story takes place in a tropical garden by a pool. The peaceful setting is in great contrast to the ferocious and complex circumstances playing out there. Two couples, friends by way of their young children, meet to work through the allegation of one couple’s 4-year-old daughter against the son of the other. A conversation that begins with civility and carefully chosen language soon takes unexpected twists and unsafe turns. Marked by notable performances from its four leads and sharp, rhythmic dialogue that doesn’t swerve from uncomfortable themes, Disclosure is sure to be one of the most talked about films this season.”

And hot off the press, our new poster:
Disclosure tells the story of soulmates Danny and Emily, whose 4-year-old daughter, Natasha, makes a serious allegation against the 9-year-old son of a local politician.
Disclosure asks the question, what would you do if your child came to you and began telling you a story about something that happened to them, that is one of your worst nightmares as a parent? And what would be the consequences of your actions?
Writer/director Michael Bentham won the prestigious Margaret Lawrence Social Justice Award for the film’s screenplay.
In 2019 Disclosure was selected by Cinema Australia as one of the nine most anticipated films due for release this year.
