We Are What We Are

Friday, February 18 - Thursday, March 3, 2011

A family drama morphs into a potent, disturbing vision of horror in this shocking, bloody and deeply moving first feature. When its patriarch drops dead in the street, a devastated Mexican clan turns to the eldest son to provide for it — by hunting human flesh. Bound together by a terrible secret and monstrous appetites, the family can only survive if he finds a way to continue their mysterious cannibalistic rituals.
