Orion Pictures and SGF Acquire SXSW Psychological Thriller ‘MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND’

June 20, 2017


Orion Pictures and Samuel Goldwyn Films have acquired the North American rights to MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND, a psychological thriller from Glass Eye Pix, directed, written, produced by and starring Ana Asensio. It won the Grand Jury Award in the narrative competition at this year’s SXSW.

Shot on Super 16mm, the film chronicles one harrowing day in the life of Luciana, a young immigrant woman struggling to make ends meet in New York while striving to escape her past. As Luciana’s day unfolds, she is whisked through a series of troublesome and unforeseeable extremes. Before her day is done, she inadvertently finds herself a central participant in a cruel game where lives are placed at risk, and psyches are twisted and broken for the perverse entertainment of a privileged few.

Asensio is joined alongside Natasha Romanova, David Little, Nicholas Tucci, Larry Fessenden and Caprice Benedetti. Jenn Wexler, Chadd Harold, Fessenden, and Noah Greenberg produce. Peter Phok, Jose María Garcia, Ahmet Bilgen, Selim Cevikel, Christopher Todd and Gill Holland executive produce.
