THE CANNIBAL CLUB
First show: March 01
“A bloody satire that devours the elite” – Bloody Disgusting
Beneath the respectable façade of their privileged existence, affluent married couple Otavio and Gilda hide a very dark secret: a penchant for murdering and then eating their hired help. Their macabre fetish is one celebrated by the Cannibal Club, a secret society of like-minded elites run by powerful businessman Borges, of which Otavio is a long-standing member. But the tables dramatically turn when Gilda accidentally stumbles upon a secret about Borges, and the carnivorous couple suddenly find themselves the hunted. A tasty mix of grisly horror, pitch-black comedy and biting political satire, Guto Parente has prepared a dish of sex and violence so wickedly perverse, it might just put you off your dinner.
Directed and written by Guto Parente. With Ana Luiza Rios, Tavinho Teixeira, Zé Maria. Brazil. 2018. 81min. DCP.
Co-presented by Cine+Más San Francisco Latino Film Festival.
