Check out the trailer for Australian horror-comedy SISSY, which is set to have its world premiere at South by Southwest in the Midnighters section on March 11.
Led by The Bold Type star Aisha Dee, the film centres on Cecilia (aka Sissy), a successful social media influencer living the dream, until she runs into her ex-teenage best friend. Invited away on a bachelorette weekend, Sissy is stuck in a remote cabin with her high school bully…and a taste for revenge. #Triggered
With an epic ensemble cast of Australian talent: Lucy Barrett (Charmed), Yerin Ha (Halo), Daniel Monks, Hannah Barlow and Emily De Margherit, Sissy is fast becoming the must-see Australian film of the year with its darkly comedic, unnervingly savage and satirical look at millennial self-victimisation in the social media age.
SISSY is written and directed by emerging Australian writer/directors Hannah Barlow and Kane Senes. The film is produced by Lisa Shaunessy and Bec Janek for Arcadia, the team behind 2021’s Kodi Smit-McPhee sci-fi starrer 2067. Arcadia (Scary of Sixty-First, In Fabric) will also distribute the film in Australia. Also producing is John De Margheriti of DEMS Entertainment, The Academy of Interactive Entertainment and Jason Taylor for Freedom Films.
Coming to Australian cinemas Halloween 2022.
