‘Most Beautiful Island’ starring Ana Asensio (Samuel Goldwyn Films)
Most Beautiful Island is a psychological thriller set in the world of undocumented female immigrants hoping to make a life in New York City.
Shot on Super 16mm with an intimate, voyeuristic sensibility, Most Beautiful Island chronicles one harrowing day in the life of Luciana, a young immigrant woman struggling to make ends meet while striving to escape her past.
As Luciana’s day unfolds, she is whisked, physically and emotionally, through a series of troublesome and unforeseeable extremes. Before her day is done, she inadvertently finds herself a central participant in a cruel game where lives are placed at risk, and psyches are twisted and broken for the perverse entertainment of a privileged few.
