SYNOPSIS

High in the mountains, eight teenage guerrillas form a cult-like paramilitary unit with a simple mission: babysit a prisoner and a cow. Their days are filled with puppy love, campfire dances and psychedelic trips on dung-grown shrooms—until a stray bullet puts an end to their adolescent antics, driving them down the mountain and right into the heart of darkness.

As one critic calls it, Monos is “savage poetry”. Each frame teeters on the brink of violence, often erupting unpredictably. Its volatile cinematography vacillates between nature and netherworld, pulsing to a haunting soundscape by Academy Award-nominated composer Mica Levi. The result is a nightmare of controlled chaos that is both beautiful and bizarre.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

Alejandro Landes is a Colombian-Ecuadorian filmmaker. He has directed Cocalero (2007) and Porfirio (2011), both of which queried Colombia’s socio-political developments. He continues his enquiry with his third film Monos, which won the World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
