ON FRIDAY 18th NOVEMBER, Arrow Films releases the visionary and bizarre slice of Mexican arthouse cinema, WE ARE THE FLESH, showing at select cinemas, and also in conjunction with ourscreen, the innovative new digital-social platform which allows filmgoers to set up their own screenings at their local cinema.
Acclaimed by the Oscar-winning Mexican directors of The Revenant and Gravity, and playing to rave reviews and stunned audiences at genre film festivals around the world, WE ARE THE FLESH is an extraordinary and unsettling film experience. The film is about a young brother and sister roaming an apocalyptic city, who take refuge in the dilapidated lair of a strange hermit who takes them on a sexually-charged, nightmarish journey into an other-worldy dimension. Debut director Emiliano Rocha Minter delivers an erotic inferno by mixing the intense, outrageously explicit imagery of Gasper Noe with the surreal, hallucinatory impact of Alejandro Jodorowsky.
Visionary, unrelenting, and certainly not for the prudish or faint-hearted, WE ARE THE FLESH is extreme art cinema at its boldest and most taboo-bustingly bizarre. Film fans who fancy something diabolically different can create their very own screening, using the people-powered capabilities of ourscreen, in one of 21 cities across the UK – including Brighton, York, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Oxford. Over half a dozen screenings have already been set up, so visit ourscreen.com/film/We-Are-The-Flesh to find out where WE ARE THE FLESH is showing – and buy your tickets now.
If it’s not showing near you, then follow the easy steps to make your own screening happen, for friends or anybody who wants to come! As one of the characters in WE ARE THE FLESH says – this ain’t no ordinary party! It certainly isn’t – this is a unique new format and an ideal pairing for a very different kind of film.
