Vertigo Releasing has announced September as the UK theatrical and digital release date for Shorta.

Festival favourite Shorta, playing to great acclaim at the Venice, Glasgow and Dublin Film Festivals, will be releasing in the UK this September.

Police officers, Jens and Mike, are on a routine patrol when news spreads of 19-year-old Talib Ben Hassi’s death whilst in police custody. As tensions escalate in the neighbourhood and the community’s youth seek revenge, the two officers find themselves in a volatile situation.

Hailing from Denmark, Shorta is the directorial debut from Anders Ølholm & Frederik Louis Hviid.

Shorta will be released in UK and Irish cinemas & digital on the 3rd September 2021.
