More about The Platform film
The Platform is a Spanish science fiction film with horror and thriller elements, directed by Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia. The film is set in a multi-story prison built like a tower with tiers. On each "floor" of the prison are two prisoners. A rectangular shaft runs through the center of the tower, through which a platform with food descends once a day. The food that originally comes to the upper level might be enough for all the prisoners, but the inhabitants of the lower floors starve, commit suicide or become cannibals, while those upstairs feast, devouring far more food than they need to survive.
The film stars Ivan Massague, Antonia San Juan, Zorion Eguileor, Emilio Buale Coca, and Alexandra Masangkai.
The film premiered in September 2019 at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it won the Midnight Madness section as voted by the audience. In the same month, the streaming platform Netflix acquired the rights to screen the film.
