Executive produced by Ryan Gosling, the 2013 vérité-styled drama White Shadow marks the filmmaking debut of Israeli artist-turned-filmmaker Noaz Deshe.

The film tells the story of Alias (newcomer Hamisi Bazili), a young albino boy on the run.

After witnessing his father’s murder, Alias’ mother sends him away to find refuge in the city and he is cared for by Uncle Kosmos, a truck driver struggling with a few small businesses. In the city, Alias is a quick learner, selling sunglasses, DVDs and mobile phones. He is fond of his uncle’s daughter, Antoinette, although his uncle disapproves. Unfortunately for Alias, however, the city becomes no different than the bush and wherever he travels the same chilling rules of survival apply.

A Sundance Grand Jury nominee and the winner of the Best Debut at the Venice Film Festival, White Shadow is the latest installment in the IndiePix Classics line, the distributor’s exclusive new imprint on stand-out titles in their curatorially ambitious catalog.
