Following its world premiere at last year’s Sitges Film Festival, and most recently, a screening at London’s FrightFest, Raven Banner Entertainment will present the North American debut of David Hebrero’s Spanish-language sophomore feature Everyone Will Burn (Y Todos Arderan) at this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin.
Directed by Hebrero, from a script he co-wrote with Javier Kiran, Everyone Will Burn takes place in a small village in Leon, Spain, where María José (Macarena Gomez -Shrew’s Nest, Skins, “30 Coins”) is contemplating ending her life as the death of her son still haunts her years later. But everything takes an about turn when she receives a visit from a mysterious young girl called Lucía who could be connected to a local legend surrounding the detention of an impending apocalypse. With this enigmatic girl by her side, María José confronts the corrupt community, sparking a series of mysterious events and horrific deaths among the local population.
Commenting on the news of being picked up to screen at Fantastic Fest, Hebrero said: “When we were in lockdown writing this madness of a film we never thought that we would be here at Fantastic Fest sharing space with industry icons. Arriving in North America alongside Raven Banner is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to get to showcase Spain’s new wave of artists. We are pumped and ready to take over Austin!”
