The film, which was shot in just two weeks, focuses on an urban dance troupe that embarks on a kind of Dionysian frenzy in an abandoned school.

Sofia Boutella stars. Producers were Edouard Weil, Vincent Maraval, and Brahim Chioua.

Screen’s review from Cannes called it an ”orgiastic horror trip”.

CAA Media Finance and sales representative Wild Bunch agreed the deal.
