High in the mountains of South America, a ragtag band of child soldiers brandishing guns stand guard over a ‘conscripted’ milk cow and a kidnapped American engineer. Awaiting instructions, the kids stave off boredom with feral teenage raves, until an attack forces them to abandon their base. A wildly original vision from Alejandro Landes and screenwriter Alexis dos Santos referencing horrors on their own continent, Monos is made all the more unsettling by Mica Levi’s brilliant score.

Followed by a Q&A with producer Leontine Petit. 

Leontine Petit is CEO & Producer at Lemming Films, whose recent feature films include Berlin AlexanderplatzMonosZamaThe LobsterFull Contact and My Giraffe.
