MUBI has picked up Andrea Arnold’s Bird as it heads to the south of France and the Cannes Film Festival where it will receive its world premiere.

MUBI has the rights for the UK and Ireland and will annouce a release date soon.

The synopsis is as follows:

12-year-old Bailey lives with her single dad Bug and brother Hunter in a squat in North Kent. Bug doesn’t have much time for his kids and Bailey who is approaching puberty seeks attention and adventure elsewhere.

Written and directed by Academy-Award winner Andrea Arnold, Bird stars BAFTA-winner and Academy-Award nominee Barry Keoghan (Banshees of Inisherin, Saltburn), Gotham-Award nominee Franz Rogowski (Passages, Great Freedom, Transit), and newcomers Nykiya Adams and Jason Buda.  It was produced by House Productions (The Iron Claw, The Wonder) and was filmed in the UK around the Kent area. As with her previous work, it is an examination of life in the fringes of society.
