Kill Me Please
Writer Anita Rocha da Silveira
Winner of the Best Director (Fiction) and Best Actress award, given to Valentina Herszage, at the Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival, KILL ME PLEASE was also an official selection at SXSW, Venice and New Directors / New Films film festivals.
Bia (Valentina Herszage), Michele (Júlia Roliz), Mariana (Mariana Oliveira) and Renata (Dora Freind) are a clique of affluent high school girls. They waste away their days wandering the fields between the vertigo-inducing high rises in Barra da Tijuca, an affluent new neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro. Both privileged and abandoned by busy parents, the girls spend most of their time together.
When a wave of murders begins to terrorize the neighborhood, the girls develop a morbid curiosity with the victims – and lines separating life, desire and death begins to break down.
Blending coming-of-age with slow-burning horror, partly inspired by the 1980s teen slasher genre, KILL ME PLEASE is a disturbing and funny dive into teenage sexuality, spirituality, loneliness and fragility – as well as an ambitious feature debut by a young and promising Brazilian director, Anita Rocha da Silveira.
