FRIDAY NIGHT FILM

Directed by

Directed By Alejandro Landes

A Best Film winner at the 2019 London Film Festival that went somewhat under the radar after its initial release, this intensely dark and visceral viewing experience demands your attention.

 

Chaos reigns after a group of guerilla soldiers, made up entirely of teenagers, are left to their own devices against the backdrop of war-torn anarchy. You could say it’s Lord of the Flies meets Apocalypse Now but that would do a disservice to a wholly original film. 

 

Mica Levi provides the perfect eerie and unsettling score as we travel through jungles and across mountains where this film never fails to hypnotize. A surreal, feverish tour-de-force that should not be slept on.
