Saffron Hill Films, subsidiary of up and coming UK distributor Peccadillo Pictures, are proud to announce the inclusion of the Manetti Brothers’ Italian science-fiction film The Arrival of Wang at this year’s London Film4 Frightfest In August. Having played at Glasgow FrightFest earlier this year to great acclaim, the Manetti brothers, Marco and Antonio, are thrilled to be part of the London line-up.
In addition to The Arrival of Wang, the Manetti Brothers will also be premiering their latest Italian box-office hit, neo-giallo Paura 3D. The Arrival of Wang will be distributed in the UK by Saffron Hill Films, a Peccadillo Pictures company, with a VoD exclusive premiere early September followed by an October 8 DVD release.
The Arrival of Wang follows Chinese-language interpreter Gaia (Francesca Cuttica), who is offered a job that pays a fortune. This time, however, it’s going to be a little different. After being escorted to a secret location in Rome, she is locked inside a pitch-black room where she is asked to interpret the harsh interrogation of the eponymous ‘Wang’. Who is Wang and what does he want? Disturbed by the way the interrogation is conducted by the domineering Inspector Curti (Ennio Fantastichini, Loose Cannons); Gaia demands that the lights are switched on. Only upon seeing Wang, does Gaia realise why the job has come with so much mystery and subterfuge. And that she may be in way over her head…
Inspired by audience-faithful cult Sci-Fi classics The Twilight Zone and The X Files, Marco and Antonio Manetti’s The Arrival of Wang welcomes a new and refreshing look at the genre, with unexpected twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
