Arrow Films Announces ‘We Are The Flesh’ Due Out In 2017

Arrow Films has announced the January 2017 theatrical debut of Emiliano Rocha Minter’s We Are the Flesh. Not for the faint of heart, this gritty, dark, disturbing and unrelenting apocalyptic fantasy stars Noé Hernández (Miss Bala 2011) as a post-apocalyptic hermit eager to transform the ashes of the world and María Evoli (De Amores y Abarrotes 2015) and newcomer Diego Gamaliel as the starving siblings under his thrall.

In just 79 minutes, Rocher Minter’s feature debut, an “erotic inferno of the senses,” has been praised by Oscar-winning Mexican directors Alfonso Cuaron (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 2004) and Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu (The Revenant 2015). We Are the Flesh stunned audiences following the world premiere at the Locarno International Film Festival and has since screened at Sitges, Fantastic Fest, Telluride and the Vancouver International Film Festival, just to name a few. So far, this gut-wrenching, provocative thriller has garnered the Séquences Award for Best Film at Fantasia and nominations for Best First Film and the FIPRESCI Prize at the Rotterdam International Film Festival.

After a critically acclaimed year on the horror festival circuit, We Are the Flesh will premiere in ten separate cities across the US. Starting its run in Los Angeles, San Antonio and Laredo on January 13th, the film will then hold special screenings in El Paso, Houston, Denver, New Orleans, San Francisco, Columbus, Phoenix, Cleveland, Portland and Albuquerque throughout both January and February.

After the end of the world, a young brother and sister roam an apocalyptic city looking for food and shelter. They take refuge in the dilapidated lair of a strange hermit who makes them a dangerous offer to survive. He puts them to work building a bizarre cavernous structure, where he acts out his insane and depraved fantasies. Trapped in a maddening womb-like world under his malign influence, they find themselves sinking into the realms of dark and forbidden behavior.

“Visually Spellbinding” — Fangoria
“Joyously demented portrait of humanity”– Variety
“The most disturbing horror debut since Hellraiser” — SFX
