Extreme: Monos



Special Jury Award, World Cinema - 2019 Sundance Film Festival
Somewhere in the mountains of northern Colombia, a group of children are being indoctrinated into the mind-set of guerilla warfare.  Through a series of events the soldiers descend into anarchy and violence across epic landscapes and claustrophobic jungles. Monos, directed by Alejandro Landes and featuring an absolutely transcendent score by Mica Levi, will take you into a world you could never imagine, nor want to, in what could only be described as Apocalypse Now by way of Lord Of The Flies.
