Like father, like daughter.
Grafted–a New Zealand-set horror pic–this week was acquired by Mister Smith Entertainment for a sales launch next month at Cannes, according to a report in Variety.
The film–currently in production–marks the feature directorial debut of Sasha Rainbow. The movie, according to the brief logline, follows a Chinese student who travels to New Zealand “to complete the scientific work of her deceased father–only to find a new way of achieving popularity. One body at a time.”
Grafted stars Joyena Sun, Jared Turner, Jess Hong, Eden Hart and Sepiutaruth To’a, with Ginette McDonald and Mark Mitchinson in supporting roles.
Rainbow–who directed the 2018 short Kamali–said she is “incredibly excited to play in the body horror space with a female-led project like Grafted. I can’t wait to unleash it on audiences around the world.”
