WE ARE WHAT WE ARE: Cannibal film to close GRIMM UP NORTH film Festival

(Somos Lo Que Hay)
Directed by Jorge Michel Grau
Starring: Francisco Barreiro, Alan Chávez, Paulina Gaitán, Carmen Beato, Jorge Zárate, Esteban Soberánes

UK RELEASE DATE: 12th November 2010

A middle-aged man dies in the street, leaving his widow and three children destitute. The devastated family is confronted not only with his loss but with a terrible challenge – how to survive. For they are cannibals. 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, who will hunt? Who will lead them? How will they sate their horrific hunger? The task falls to the eldest son, Alfredo, a teenage misfit who seems far from ready to accept the challenge… But without human meat the family will die. Shocking, bloody and deeply moving, WE ARE WHAT WE ARE is a remarkable reinvention of the horror genre – a visceral and powerfully emotional portrait of a family bound by a terrible secret and driven by monstrous appetites.

GRIMM UP NORTH is Manchester’s Premier Horror & Sci-Fi Festival, taking place at The Dancehouse (28th-31st October)

The Gala opening night takes place on the 28th October and will kick off with the horror classic LAST MAN ON EARTH, starring the legend Vincent Price. There will also be the North West Premier of OUTCAST starring James Nesbitt and Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan.
