IFC Picks Up Madonna’s Filth and Wisdom


Variety reports that IFC Entertainment has secured North American rights to Madonna’s directorial debut, Filth and Wisdom.

Written by Madonna and Dan Cadan, and co-produced by Madonna and Nicola Doring, the comedy-drama was initially intended as a short. It will get a theatrical run coinciding with video-on-demand availability.

In the film, the intertwining plotlines track, among other characters, a man who spanks for money, a chemist and a pole dancer.
