Performance before the screening: HEATHERS’ BLOOD FEAST: A TALK GONE HORRIBLY WRONG

The heat in the Spanish one-horse town is stifling. The overweight butcher’s daughter Sara endures the summer more than she enjoys it. She is shy, has no friends, and keeps to herself mostly, not least because her peers keep mocking her and her body. On her way home after yet another, particularly gruesome incident at the swimming pool, Sara witnesses something that will change her life forever. Carlota Pereda’s Piggy mutates from a bullying drama to a revenge fantasy to a blood-soaked struggle for survival. A stand-out among horror debuts.
