ARGENTINA, Colombia, Germany, Netherlands | 105 minutes | 2019

A group of inexperienced guerrillas train hard as part of an obscure paramilitary organization with an American hostage. When the commander leaves the camp, the situation degenerates alarmingly. Between power games and acts of rebellion, this hyper-sensory, carnal, violent and untamed adventure is a head-spinning immersion in an alternate universe: that of a dysfunctional band of young soldiers engaged in baffling rituals. Like an Apocalypse Now in the Colombian jungle, Monos keeps the suspense running high through its meticulous staging and the strangeness of its thunderous score.

"A thrilling survivalist saga." IndieWire
"Monos never settles into one rhythm, keeping audiences on edge." Screendaily
