by Alejandro Landes New World View: Colombia

They form a troop that is as wild as it is bizarre. Their names are Patagrande, Rambo, Leidi, Sueca, Pitufo, Lobo, Perro and Bum Bum. As young members of a paramilitary organisation, they are tasked with guarding the dairy cow Shakira, and more importantly, the American hostage “Doctora”. Things soon get out of hand and the youngsters are forced to move ever-deeper into the jungle; a nerve-racking odyssey begins. With its spectacular imagery and the haunting synth sound of Mica Levi, Alejandro Landes’ captivating feature film MONOS catapults us into an almost surreal place, where emotions and instincts prevail over the mind. A breathless, extraordinary cinematic event that has impressed at Sundance as well as Berlin this year.
