2010 Four Lions. budget = £608,608
1996 Trainspotting. budget = $3,500,000
Both these films are low-budget british movies like Absent, and Film4 have proudly distributed them. For this reason i believe they would be a good production company to distribute Absent as it is British, Low- budget and Independant.
