Alejandro Landes’ Monos has been in competition in Sundance (where it won the World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award) and Berlin 2019 (nominated for Best Feature Film), it’ll also play in competition at this year’s London Film Festival. As well as stunning performances from the young cast, the film has an amazing score by Mica Levi (Jackie and Under The Skin), habitually praised by audiences and critics alike. MONOS has also been selected as Colombia’s bid for an Oscar in the international feature category, and will also represent the country at the Spanish Goya awards.

In a remote mountaintop setting somewhere in Latin America, a rebel group of teenage commandos bearing names like Rambo, Smurf, Bigfoot, Wolf and Boom-Boom perform military training exercises while watching over a prisoner (Julianne Nicholson) and a conscripted milk cow for a shadowy force known only as “The Organization”. After an ambush drives the squadron into the jungle, both the mission and the intricate bonds between the group begin to disintegrate. Order descent into chaos and within Monos the strong begin to prey on the weak.

The film stars Moises Arias, Julianne Nicholson, Sofia Buenaventura, Julian Giraldo, Karen Quintero, Laura Castrillón, Deiby Rueda, Paul Cubides and Sneider Castro.

MONOS is released in UK cinemas across UK & Ireland on 25th October 2019.
