Apio Verde

A striking, emotionally charged horror/ suspense film in the tradition of Polanski’s Repulsion and Darren Aranofsky’s Black Swan

In this stylish suspense film, the cinematography and direction captures the personal emotional horror of a woman living a society that goes against her life while trying to preserve a “pro-life” stance. The film poignantly addresses the challenges of the modernization of economy without the modernization of its social and political culture – a pressing socio-political issue in modern-day Latin America. Apio Verde casts a sharp light on this current global controversy at the front of the abortion debate and takes a strong pro-choice stand powerfully told using the medium of film.
