MUBI, the global distributor, streaming service and production company, has announced Charlotte Wells’ critically acclaimed and award-winning Aftersun will stream exclusively in the INDIA on MUBI from 6 January 2023.  

The feature debut of Wells, starring BAFTA Award-winning actor Paul Mescal (Normal PeopleThe Lost Daughter) and 12-year-old Scottish actor Frankie Corio in her debut role, received its World Premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the French Touch Jury Prize. Recently, Aftersun was nominated for 16 British Independent Film Awards, making it the second most nominated film ever for a single title, and took home Best British Independent Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Debut Director, Best Cinematography, Best Editing and Bust Music Supervision. Wells also won Breakthrough Director for the film at the 2022 Gotham Awards.

Eleven-year-old Sophie and her father, Calum, vacation at a Turkish beach resort in the late 1990s. They swim, play pool, and enjoy each other’s company; they’re partners in crime. Calum is the best version of himself when he is with Sophie. Sophie feels like anything is possible when Calum is around. When Sophie is on her own, she navigates new friendships and experiences. As they enjoy their time together, layers of melancholy and mystery ripple through Calum’s behavior. Twenty years later, the memories take on new meaning as Sophie tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn’t.

The film was written and directed by Scottish filmmaker Charlotte Wells, who has been featured in Filmmaker Magazine’s “25 Faces of Independent Film” and was a Fellow at the 2020 Sundance Institute Screenwriters and Directors Labs. AFTERSUN is her first feature.

AFTERSUN  WILL BE AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY ON MUBI  IN INDIA FROM 6 JANUARY 2023.
