We Are Who We Are was created and directed by Luca Guadagnino, who also directed the Academy Award-winning movie Call Me By Your Name. The film features other big names like The Act star Chloe Sevigny and rising star Jack Dylan Grazer of It.

Kid Cudi, whose real name is Scott Mescudi, is set to play Richard Harper, an American soldier and the father of Caitlin, whom he shares a close relationship with. Kid Cudi has had small roles in other television shows such as How To Make It In America and Westworld, and fans are even more eager to see his performance in We Are Who We Are after watching the attention-grabbing trailer.

After the success of Call Me By Your Name, the pressure is on for Guadagnino to deliver in his new series. Be sure to catch the premiere of We Are Who We Are Sept. 14 on HBO.
