Alejandro Landes’ awe-inspiring film is set on a remote mountain in Latin America. The film tracks a young group of soldiers and rebels who keep watch over an American hostage, forming an unconventional family bound together under 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. Monos examines the chaos and absurdity of war from the unique perspective of adolescence. 103 minutes. English with Spanish subtitles.  

Special Jury Award – Sundance Film Festival 

"Inspired by the upheaval in his native Colombia, Alejandro Landes’s story of teenage guerrillas descending into anarchy is a hypnotic triumph." —  Mark Kermode, The Guardian
