"Mesmerizing. Alejandro Landes is a powerful new voice in cinema.” - Guillermo Del Toro.

“Overpoweringly tense and deeply mad […] something between Apocalypse Now, Lord of the Flies and Embrace of the Serpent”- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Alejandro Landes’ awe-inspiring third feature is a breath-taking, hypnotic and hallucinatory survival thriller set on a remote mountain in Latin America. The film follows a feral group of child soldiers and rebels -- bearing names like Rambo, Smurf, Bigfoot, Wolf and Boom-Boom -- who keep watch over an American hostage.

With a rapturous score by Mica Levi (Under the Skin, Jackie), the film examines the chaos and absurdity of war from the unique perspective of adolescence, recalling Lord of the Flies in a way that feels wholly original. Featuring a diverse young cast of both seasoned professionals and newcomers, Landes thrusts them into an unforgiving, irrational and often surreal environment where anything can happen — even peace.

This film contains a sequence of flashing lights which might affect customers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
