July 23: Cannibal

Carlos is the most prestigious tailor in his city. But he’s also a serial killer who eats his female victims. When a beautiful, young woman comes looking for her missing twin sister, the remorseless murderer starts to fall for her. You can see Cannibal, a Spanish-language love story with a horrifying angle, at the Angelika Mosaic Film Center in Fairfax tonight at 7:30 p.m. Following the show, director Manuel Martin will join attendees via Skype for a live question and answer session.
