Originally titled 'Tenemos la carne', 'We Are the Flesh' has been on our radar since its initial run in festival circuits, with the accumulation of glowing reviews and praise only serving to further increase our anticipation for its release. The grisly eroticism and apocalyptic imagery are nothing short of captivating, coupled with a talented cast and a director with an eye for stylized abstract film making and production, we suspect that the results can only be system shock levels of effectiveness. Come January, audiences will have the opportunity to experience it for themselves. Details in the press release below.

Los Angeles, CA - Arrow Films has announced the January 2017 theatrical rollout of Emiliano Rocha Minter's We Are the Flesh. After a thought-provoking and acclaimed year on the festival circuit, the film will screen in over ten cities across the United States.  Visionary, unrelenting, and not for the faint-hearted, Rocha Minter's provocative and explicit creation is an erotic inferno of the senses that manages to pack all manner of delirium into its short running time.  On the heels of the January 13 Los Angeles debut, We Are the Flesh will open in New York City on January 20, 2017 for a week's run at Cinema Village. 

We Are the Flesh will also open for weeklong runs in Laredo and San Antonio on January 13, Denver and New Orleans on January 20, and San Francisco and Columbus and January 27.  Special screenings include El Paso, Houston, Phoenix, Cleveland, Portland and Albuquerque throughout January and February.

Hailed by Oscar-winning Mexican directors Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity) and Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu (The Revenant), We Are the Flesh stars Noé Hernández as a post-apocalyptic hermit eager to transform the ashes of the world and María Evoli and Diego Gamaliel as the starving siblings under his thrall.   

Rocha Minter's debut feature stunned audiences following the world premiere at the Locarno International Film Festival.  We Are the Flesh has since screened at festivals around the world, including Sitges, Fantastic Fest, Telluride, the Vancouver International Film Festival and more, picking up the Séquences Award for Best Film at Fantasia and nominations for Best First Film and the FIPRESCI Prize at the Rotterdam International Film Festival. 

A young brother and sister, roaming an apocalyptic city, take refuge in the dilapidated lair of a strange hermit. He puts them to work building a bizarre cavernous structure, where he acts out his insane and depraved fantasies. Trapped in this maddening womb-like world under his malign influence, they find themselves sinking into the realms of dark and forbidden behaviour.
