Bell Does Battle
Stuntwoman and actress New Zealander Zoë Bell, 34, headlines a “sly subversion of the women-in-prison genre”, Raze, which is playing in the ‘Midnight Section’ as part of the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, taking place 17-28 April in New York. “After Sabrina (Bell) is abducted, she finds herself in an underground lair, forced to do battle with other innocent women for the amusement of unseen spectators. Violent and relentless, Raze takes its video game aesthetic to the deepest and darkest places, rarely surfacing for air.” Auckland-born Bell’s most notable stunt work includes doubling for Uma Thurman in Quentin Tarentino’s Kill Bill. New Zealand director Danny Mulheron’s horror/comedy, Fresh Meat, starring Temuera Morrison, also screens at the festival.
