This is one of those films that is always on the edge, putting on the table the eternal struggle between good and evil in a unique way; it makes us rethink where absolute concepts lead us.” Daniel de la VegaShot in HFR at 48fps (Avatar, The Hobbit) to give it a hyper reality, this film is first of this kind made with these tech specs in Latin America, and with a rhythm that doesn’t stop growing. The film catches, intrigues, and leaves the viewer breathless.In words of Mar del Plata Film Festival : “The story of a cynical best-selling fiction writer famous for his atheism paves the way for questions related to fanaticism and its limits such as madness. Following a tradition that includes from classics like Rosemary’s Baby and Carrie to more recent films like Red State, The Last Heretic has many narrative surprises and a visually striking climax that confirms the great technical moment Argentine horror is going through.”The Last Heretic is a Blood Window Selection which presented the first Work in Progress images at the Marché du Films – Cannes then was a WIP selected at BIF Market during its most recent edition. The producers are very thrilled for this first screening with an audience at Mar del Plata. Del Toro Films and Furia Films will be meeting in person with other industry professionals at American Film Market in Santa Monica.Del Toro Films and Furia Films are also working on the postproduction of AUXILIO (Help) directed by Tamae Garateguy, and developing new projects for 2023.
