MONOS is fresh from its win at the London Film Festival where it was awarded the Best Film award and will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland from Friday 25th October by Picturehouse Entertainment.
Wash Westmoreland, Official Competition President commented on the film: “Monos is a stunning cinematic achievement; marrying dynamic visuals, faultless performances and groundbreaking storytelling. It’s a masterpiece!”
Having been in competition in Sundance (where it won the World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award) and Berlin 2019 (nominated for Best Feature Film), its London reception was similarly well-received. As well as stunning performances from the young cast, the film has an amazing score by Mica Levi (Jackie and Under The Skin), habitually praised by audiences and critics alike. MONOS has also been selected as Colombia’s bid for an Oscar in the international feature category, and will also represent the country at the Spanish Goya awards
On a remote mountaintop, a rebel group of commandos perform military training exercises while watching over a prisoner for a shadowy force known only as ‘The Organization’. After a series of unexpected events drives them deep into the jungle, fracturing their intricate bond, their mission slowly begins to collapse.
Set against a stunningly beautiful but dangerous landscape, Alejandro Landes’ awe-inspiring film is a breathtakingly epic vision that will leave you both mesmerised and utterly gripped.
