A party turns hellish in thriller Most Beautiful Island clip

Posted on

In the new thriller Most Beautiful Island, a struggling, undocumented immigrant named Luciana agrees to attend a party in New York in exchange for a large amount of money. We’ll say no more about the plot of the film (which is now available to watch via On Demand and Digital), partly so as not to spoil it, and partly because the show’s star, writer, and first-time director Ana Ansensio agreed to pen a few sentences about the film and how she came to make it.

“I had been an actress since I was 18 years old,” says the Spanish filmmaker. “I moved to NYC when I was 22 with the hopes of living new experiences and learning how to be a better actor. Over the course of the years, I realized that as an actor, you don’t have any control over your career, and this inspired me to write my own story with the ambition of acting in it and directing it. Most Beautiful Island is a very personal project since the story is based on a very specific time of my life, struggling in NYC, when I was particularly vulnerable. I wanted to make a film that, while being a social drama, would also be a thriller and had some disturbing genre elements to it. I love realistic and raw films as much as I love surreal films, and I wanted to experiment with playing with different genres within the same film.”

Most Beautiful Island costars Natasha Romanova, David Little, Nicholas Tucci, Larry Fessenden, and Caprice Benedetti. The film is produced by Asensio, Fessenden, Jenn Wexler, Chadd Harbold, and Noah Greenberg.

Most Beautiful Island is now available to watch via On Demand and Digital.
