Maximiliano Contenti’s latest film could be scaring audiences globally…
Reel Suspects has added the Uruguayan film director’s Spanish-language horror Al Morir La Matinee (English title TBD) to its line-up ahead of the Cannes Virtual Marche.
Directed by Contenti, the film is set in a Montevideo movie theatre, following events after a silent killer enters the venue’s final screening. The young girl in charge of the screening will have to face the threat to save her life and that of the present audience. Luciana Grasso and Ricardo Islas lead the cast.
Contenti has directed several shorts and docs, and has been running his Uruguay-based production outfit Yukoh Films since 2013. He is also currently in production on music documentary Hot Club Of Montevideo.
