After a thought-provoking and acclaimed year on the festival circuit, the film will screen in over ten cities across the United States.

Hailed by Oscar-winning Mexican directors Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity) and Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu (The Revenant), We Are the Flesh stars Noé Hernández as a post-apocalyptic hermit eager to transform the ashes of the world and María Evoli and Diego Gamaliel as the starving siblings under his thrall.
