The streaming giant will release the the Spanish-language sci-fi thriller in all territories outside select Asian markets.
Netflix has acquired the world rights, except for select Asian territories, to the Spanish-language sci-fi thrillerThe Platform, which had a world bow in the Midnight Madness section at the TorontoFilm Festival.
Directed by Galder Gaztelu-Irrutia from a screenplay by David Desola and Pedro Rivera, the dystopian drama stars Ivan Massague, Antonia San Juan, Zorion Eguileor, Emilio Buale and Alexandra Masangkay.
The thriller portrays a citizen of a not-too-distant dystopia who voluntarily incarcerates himself with the promise of increased social mobility upon release, but becomes so radicalized by his captivity that he will risk everything to ride a devilish dumbwaiter on a one-way ticket to protect a panna cotta.
The Platform is produced by Carlos Juárez and co-producers David Matamoros and M. Angeles Hernandez, in association with Basque Films, Mr. Miyagi Films and Plataforma la Película AIE.
