TO KILL THE BEAST – Interview with Agustina San Martin

Filmmaker Agustina San Martin’s feature film debut is currently at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival.  TO KILL THE BEAST is about, “Emilia, 17, arrives at her Aunt Ines’ hostel at the border between Argentina and Brazil, looking for her long lost brother.“.  The film is a visually stunning look into the coming of age of young Emilia in the jungles that border Argentina and Brazil.  Agustina was awesome enough to chat with Selig Film News’ Gadi Elkon about her film.

In this luxuriant jungle, where local myths and legends abound, a dangerous beast believed to be the spirit of an evil man taking the form of different animals seems to be roaming around. On a journey to sexual awakening, Emilia will have to confront her past in order to kill the beast.
