On April 20th, SHUDDER presents visionary Mexican director Emiliano Rocha Minter's WE ARE THE FLESH which pushes extreme cinema to its breaking point. The film has been banned by other streaming platforms in the UK.
Championed by Oscar-winning director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu and acclaimed filmmaker Carlos Reygadas, the film lunges head-first into a post-apocalyptic world where brother and sister Lucio and Fauna stumble upon a man who makes them a dangerous offer to survive the outside world. As they help him transform his surroundings into a womb-like cave, a disquieting sexual relationship emerges, along with a dynamic in which darker instincts do their destructive work.
Challenging, controversial and aggressively edgy, WE ARE THE FLESH is as technically brilliant as it is gleefully transgressive.
