Breaking Glass Pictures announces the North American theatrical release of Is That You? (¿Eres tú, papá?), the gripping and suspenseful debut feature by filmmaker Rudy Riverón Sánchez and the first psychological horror film made in Cuba. A film festival-favorite, Is That You? opens Friday, August 2 at the Laemmle Music Hall in Los Angeles, followed by a DVD & VOD release on Tuesday, August 13.

Living in a modest shack in the Cuban countryside, thirteen-year-old Lili and her mother appear trapped in a meagre, suffocating existence by her domineering father, Eduardo. His sudden absence should represent a new freedom for the girl and her mother, but Lili is distraught, and we come to discover just how strong the influence of this monstrous man is over his family. In desperation at losing Eduardo, Lili carries out a ritual taught to her by a spiritualist to help bring him back, leading Lili to uncover a disturbing truth about her father’s disappearance. 

Is That You? had its world premiere at the Oldenburg International Film Festival in Germany—where its protagonist Gabriela Ramos won the Seymour Cassel Award for Outstanding Performance, and has played at numerous international film festivals including Miami (MIFF), the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival in South Korea, the San Francisco Independent Film Festival, the Cambridge Film Festival, and the Richmond International Film Festival, where it was awarded the IFF Grand Jury Award for Best Feature Film and the Rising Star Award for lead actress Ramos.

With impeccable performances, a somber ambiance, and elegant filmmaking, Is That You? announces Rudy Riverón Sánchez as a Cuban filmmaker to watch.
