Certain to shock, certain to be talked about, and certain to be a collector’s item.
A Certain Sacrifice stars a then-unknown 20-year old named Madonna. She plays Bruna, a sexy, street-wise girl surviving in New York’s Lower East Side.
After she is brutally assaulted in a coffe shop, Bruna and her dedicated gang of friends set out for revenge ... leading to a shocking ending.
Shot in 1979, before Madonna soared to pop superstardom, A Certain Sacrifice typifies the raw-edged, quick-cut style of today’s rock videos.
Director Stephen Jon Lewicki brings excitement, energy and a unique visual flair to this early experimental film. Film, Rock and Video buffs (as well as Madonna fans)
won’t want to miss this rare glimpse at a very early chapter in the history of a living pop legend!
Originally shot on Super 8mm in 1979, this film exhibits a raw and intimate experimental film style.
