Brand-new 4K restoration of ARREBATO, a dimension-shattering blend of heroin, sex, and Super-8 is the final word on cinemania. This towering feat of counterculture was the final feature of Spanish cult filmmaker and movie poster designer Iván Zulueta (ONE, TWO, THREE, ENGLISH HIDE?AND?SEEK). Starring Eusebio Poncela (LAW OF DESIRE), Cecila Roth (ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER), and Will More (THE HIT).
Synopsis for ARREBATO
Horror movie director José is adrift in a sea of doubt and drugs. As his belated second feature nears completion, his reclusive bubble is popped by two events: a sudden reappearance from an ex-girlfriend and a package from past acquaintance Pedro: a reel of Super-8 film, an audiotape, and a door key. From there, the boundaries of time, space, and sexuality are erased as José is once more sucked into Pedro’s vampiric orbit. Together, they attempt the ultimate hallucinogenic catharsis through a moebius strip of filming and being filmed.
Never before released theatrically in the U.S.A, Altered Innocence is thrilled to bring Zulueta’s vision, and Pedro Almodóvar’s favorite horror film, to a wider audience for the first time this fall.
