IFC Midnight released an exclusive clip to Latino-Review from the upcoming thriller â€œPenumbra.â€
The film is directed by the Argentinean directors Andrian Garcia Boliano and Ramiro Garcia Bogliano.
The thriller stars Christina Brondo, Camila Bordonaba, Berta Muniz, Arnaldo Andre and Mirella Pascual.
Here is the official synopsis of the film:
Combining stylistic elements of classic Polanski with a contemporary vision that rivals anyone working in horror today, the Bogliano brothers’ PENUMBRA is a superbly realized South American horror slow-burner. Marga is a highly motivated, arrogant and successful businesswoman on assignment in Buenos Aires â€” a city she hates and whose people she loathes. While in the Argentina capital on a day the whole population is waiting to view a rare solar eclipse she must also find a new tenant for her family’s decrepit apartment. Rapidly losing her patience waiting for one applicant she runs into the mysterious Jorge lurking outside the front door of the place who informs her that he has a client willing to pay four times what she is asking in rent. There’s one catch â€” the paperwork must be signed immediately. As greedy Marga waits to complete the transaction several of Jorge’s associates suspiciously appear at the apartment ready to strip the wallpaper. And what’s behind the dÃ©cor signals a startling fate worse than death — or should that be life!
So whatâ€™s behind the wall? Is it really a sack of potatoes or something much more sinister? Hereâ€™s a hint: Penumbra has something to do with the eclipse.
â€œPenumbraâ€ will be available nationwide on IFC Midnight Cable VOD and Digital Outlets on April 20, and it will open at the IFC Center in New York.
