Studio Soho Distribution have released the new trailer and poster for the powerful and stirring new psychological thriller, HURACÁN, out in UK cinemas from 23 October 2020.
Written, produced, directed by, and starring Cassius Corrigan, and set in the brutal world of Mixed Martial Arts fighting, where only the toughest (both physically and mentally) survive HURACÁN highlights a fresh and exciting new voice in cinema.
HURACÁN follows Alonso Santos (Corrigan) as he struggles to make it as a professional in the MMA sphere.
As he lands punches and kicks inside the ring, outside he too battles – trying to overcome his Dissociative Identity Disorder which manifests itself in his fearsomely aggressive alternate personality, Huracán.
With help from his therapist, Isabella (Yara Martinez), Alonso prepares for the biggest fight of his life, knowing he must master himself before he can defeat his opponent.
HURACÁN puts us right in the middle of the cage, in the heart of the action, as we experience the gladiatorial fights, awash with blood and sweat.
Helping to bring this rawness to the screen are MMA heavyweights including former Middleweight and Super Middleweight Muay Thai World Champion kickboxer Grégory “Cheetah” Choplin and Jorge Masvidal, winner of UFC’s inaugural BMF title.
With real-life fighters and consultants on the film, HURACÁN boasts a verité aesthetic and intensity in its drama.
