Ah, the prospect of Mexi-cannibals. How we love thee. IFC Midnight’s We Are What We Are, or Somos Lo Que Hay, is getting set to premiere in a couple of weeks, and we’ve got the details on where and when for you lucky East Coasters!
We Are What We Are (review here) will receive its US theatrical premiere on Friday, February 18th, at IFC Center in New York City. It will simultaneously be available nationwide on IFC Midnight’s video on demand platform, available to over 50 million homes in all major markets.
When a middle-aged man drops dead in a Mexico City shopping mall, leaving his widow and three teenage children destitute, the devastated family is confronted not only with his loss but with a terrible challenge — how to survive. The big issue at hand is that they have always existed on a diet of human flesh, consumed in bloody ritual ceremonies, and the victims have always been provided by the father. Now that he is gone, they must determine who will do the hunting. With a superb sense of aesthetics, slow-burning suspense and a dark wit, Mexican writer-director Jorge Michel Grau has created an arthouse horror treat.
