Manticore (MANTÍCORA)


Julián seems like an average guy, living an ordinary life. He's a video game designer, enjoys drinks with friends, and has a budding romance with Diana. But what is it about Julian that makes us feel so deeply unnerved? Is it his awkwardness? His unsettling demeanour? Or is there something more sinister lurking beneath the surface? Will Julián find redemption in his new relationship with Diana, or will his dark impulses consume him entirely? 

Guaranteed to provoke and challenge audiences, Manticore is an unflinching character study of an all-too-human monster that leaves you questioning your own capacity for evil.

Screens with short film El Umbral.
