Raven Banner has acquired three films for Canada, starting with the Mexican-Chilean horror movie El Habitante (The Inhabitant), directed and written by Guillermo Amoedo, a co-writer on Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno and Knock, Knock. The film turns on three sisters who break into a corrupt Mexican senator’s home to rob him, liberating his small daughter, chained up in the basement only to discover that she’s possessed.
Raven Banner also snapped up Marie Losier’s Cannes Acid documentary, “Cassandro the Exotico!” from Urban Distribution International. The documentary follows openly gay Mexican luchador Cassandro the “Liberace of Lucha Libre,” during the last years of his long and bone-breaking career.
Lastly, the company also picked up Cannes Critics Week memory-loss psychodrama Fugue by director Agnieszka Smoczyńska‘s The Lure. Fugue tells the story of a woman who has experienced prolonged memory loss. When she comes to reunite with her family, the idea of motherhood is no longer an appealing one.
