Ahead of its US limited release next month, Cinema Slate has released a trailer for writer-director Anita Rocha da Silveira’s Brazilian coming-of-age dramedy / horror mashup Kill Me Please; take a look below, along with the synopsis and a new poster…
Bia (Valentina Herszage), Michele (Júlia Roliz), Mariana (Mariana Oliveira) and Renata (Dora Freind) are a clique of affluent high school girls. They waste away their days wandering the fields between the vertigo-inducing high rises in Barra da Tijuca, an affluent new neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro. Both privileged and abandoned by busy parents, the girls spend most of their time together.
When a wave of murders begins to terrorize the neighborhood, the girls develop a morbid curiosity with the victims – and lines separating life, desire and death begins to break down.
Kill Me Please is set for release on September 1st at Alamo Drafthouse Downtown Brooklyn in New York, NY, and on October 13th at Arena Cinelounge in Los Angeles, CA.
