Altitude Film Distribution have unveiled the new movie poster artwork for acclaimed detective thriller Marshland (La Isla Minima).
Alberto Rodriguez’s claustrophobic film set in post Franco Spain won 10 Spanish Academy Goya Awards and will be released in UK cinemas on 7 August 2015.
Marshland has drawn comparisons to Oscar-winning The Secret in Their Eyes, David Fincher’s Se7en as well as hit TV series True Detective. The film is inspired by the photography of Seville’s Atín Aya, Bolaño’s crime novel 2666 and US noir movies like Chinatown.
Set in Andalusia’s wetlands in 1980 at the start of Spain’s transition to democracy, two teenage girls go missing in a remote and forgotten town. Two troubled homicide detectives. Juan (Javier Gutiérrez) and Pedro (Raúl Arévalo) must put aside their differences to hunt a predator who for years has terrorised a community stuck in the past.
Marshland was the undisputed winner at the 2015 Spanish Academy Goya Awards. The 10 prizes included Best Film, Best Director (Alberto Rodríguez), Best Actor (Javier Gutiérrez), Best Original Screenplay (Alberto Rodríguez and Rafael Cobos), Best Cinematography (Alex Catalán) and Best Breakthrough Performance (Nerea Barros).
This Warner Bros Spain production was a resounding box office hit when it opened in its home country last year.
