Kill Me Please - Trailer
The Future is Female (Directors): Trailers • 2m 16s
Anita Rocha da Silveira • Brazil • 2011 • School girls feel a morbid fascination with local murders.
Bia, Michele, Mariana and Renata live in an affluent neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro. Considered the cool girls at school, they are both priveleged and neglected by their parents, who more or less leave them to their own devices. A wave of murders suddenly appears, terrorizing their neighborhood—instead of fear, however, the girls feel a mutual and morbid fascination with the victims.
Blending elements of slow-burn horror and female coming-of-age, Kill Me Please weaves a captivating portrait of female adolescence in which teenage sexuality, desire, and death intermingle in unsettling ways. Anita Rocha da Silveira's debut film premiered at SXSW - South by Southwest, the Venice International Film Festival, New Directors/New Films, and Rio de Janeiro, where it won Best Director and Best Actress.
