Short film ‘Song For Someone’ featuring music by U2 to debut on Sundance TV

Song For Someone is named after a song on the band’s latest album

Sundance TV has announced that the network will host the exclusive world premiere of the short film Song For Someone, featuring the eponymous song by U2 off their current album Songs of Innocence (Interscope). The film will air immediately following the season three, one-hour premiere of Rectify, which begins on Thursday, July 9th at 10 PM ET/PT.

Directed by Vincent Haycock, cinematography by Steve Annis and produced by Pete Vitale & Park Pictures, Song For Someone features Woody Harrelson as a man being released from prison after years of incarceration and features his daughter Zoe Harrelson. The piece thematically links to Rectify, Sundance TV’s Peabody Award-winning series that follows the story of Daniel Holden and his family as they struggle to move forward after Daniel’s release from 19 years on death row.
