Cinema Slate announced yesterday (Aug. 5) the New York theatrical release of Anita Rocha da Silveria's debut feature "Kill Me Please." It is slated to open Sept. 1 at Alamo Drafthuse Downtown Brooklyn. After that, the film will expand nationwide and a VOD and physical media release are expected by May 2018.

The Brazillian film has won awards for Best Director (Fiction) and Best Actress award (Valentina Herszage) at the Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival. It was also an official selection at SXSW, Venice, and New Directors/New Films.

"Kill Me Please" is about a clique of high school girls who are both privileged and abandoned by busy parents. When a wave of murders begins to terrorize the neighborhood, the girls develop a morbid curiosity with the victims.

The cast includes Julia Roliz, Valentina Herszage, Mariana Oliveira, and Dora Freind.

"Kill Me Please" is described as a disturbing and funny dive into teenage sexuality, spirituality, loneliness, and fragility. It's also partly inspired by the 80s teen slasher genre.
