HUMANE - Caitlin Cronenberg's Dystopian Satire Starring Jay Baruchel, Emily Hampshire, Peter Gallager - Opens in Theaters 4/26

Debut Feature "HUMANE" by Caitlin Cronenberg Explores Thought-Provoking Dystopian Themes

The first details have surfaced about the much-anticipated debut feature from acclaimed filmmaker Caitlin Cronenberg. Titled "HUMANE," the dystopian thriller showcases a departure from conventional horror narratives, aligning with the recent trend observed in Shudder and IFC films. This emerging movement highlights a return to more human-centered elements within sinister storylines.

HUMANE takes place over a single day, mere months after a global ecological collapse has forced world leaders to take extreme measures to reduce the earth’s population. In a wealthy enclave, a recently retired newsman has invited his grown children to dinner to announce his intentions to enlist in the nation’s new euthanasia program. But when the father’s plan goes horribly awry, tensions flare and chaos erupts among his children.

Moviegoers can anticipate the theatrical release of "HUMANE" in select theaters on April 26, offering an immersive cinematic experience. Following this, the film will be available exclusively on Shudder in July, providing a broader audience with the opportunity to engage with its thought-provoking narrative.

To provide a glimpse into the cinematic world of "HUMANE," the first image from the film has been released by IFC/SHUDDER. Fans and enthusiasts can stay tuned for additional updates on this groundbreaking project, promising a unique exploration of dystopian themes without resorting to horror tropes.
