Drama | Brasilien/USA | 115 min

Set in a non-specific Latin American country, ”Kiss of the Spider Woman” takes a penetrating look at the role of sex, politics, and torture under an oppressive right-wing regime. The timeless story, more relevant today than ever, follows the complex relationship between two, fundamentally different men with opposite life views – building with emotional crescendo as they gradually come together in a stunning transcendental conclusion.

William Hurt delivers his Oscar-winning performance in this captivating tribute to the power of film and fantasy as escape from inhumane conditions.

This groundbreaking film was the first independent ever to receive the top four Oscar nominations including Best Picture for producer David Weisman, and Best Director for Hector Babenco. Adapted by Academy Award nominated screenwriter Leonard Schrader from Manuel Puig’s novel.
