Eye Without A Face

Do you know who's watching this very moment? Brand new horror feature Eye Without A Face from director Ramin Niami (Paris, Shirin In Love) combines chills, thrills and bloody murder to bring the voyeur genre bang up to date. This edgy movie creeps on to digital 23 August for its UK Premiere from Miracle M.

Holed up in his LA apartment agoraphobic Henry (Dakota Shapiro - The Affair, Valley Of The Boom), spends his days hacking into the webcams of unsuspecting local young women, seeing himself as their protector and guardian angel, rather than what he really is... a stalker. But his creepy peeks take a sinister turn as he starts to suspect one of his 'friends', Laura (Vladka Verevko - South Park, Suits), is a killer...

When his YouTuber flat mate Eric (Luke Cook - Dynasty, Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina) steps in to try and put a stop to the twisted hobby, things take a turn for the worse. With Henry becoming more and more convinced that the woman is a murderer and Laura beginning to suspect she's being watched, the two are soon on a collision course - who will make it out alive?

Beware the Eye Without A Face, you never know who's looking.

Flatland

This innovative and captivating film premiered at Berlin International Film Festival to critical acclaim and follows three women as their lives collide as they endeavour to escape. The film is set for its UK premiere courtesy of Bohemia Media on 17 August 2021 on the Bohemia Euphoria, followed by a digital release on 23 August 2021.

Set against the harsh and bleakly beautiful scenery of South Africa, the film takes the classically male-dominated western genre and turns it on its head, exploring the delicate issues of gender politics and consent through a female lens.

Suffering from anxiety Natalie (Nicole Fortuin - Dead In The Water, Rage) is already apprehensive about her impending nuptials, but when her wedding night ends in violence she flees the scene, her husband and her small rural town in the desolate Karoo region. Reuniting with her best friend, the heavily pregnant Poppie (Izel Bezuidenhout - Ring Of Beasts), the two women escape together on horseback across the endless winter landscape. But they're not out of the woods yet, as hot on their trail is lonely policewoman Beauty Cuba (Faith Baloyi - Tried To, Blowing In The Wind) who is intent on proving the innocence of her long-lost ex-fiancee, the man who has been framed for Natalie's crime.

Flatland is a breathtakingly original journey of three extraordinary women on their difficult path to freedom.
