Love, hate, broken promises and five friends meet in the streets of a hostile city. Camilo, Mechas, Manu, Ana and Pipa are going through that blend of intense unrest, astonishment, tenderness and rage that is typical of the end of adolescence. They survive at the edges of Medellin, a city that simultaneously attracts and excludes them. Music, street art and friendship are their weapons of resistance, hoping for a rite of passage that could transform them into someone else. Mesa describes his acclaimed debut feature as a personal encounter with the Anarcho-Punk youth movement, reflecting a “generation of discontented dreamers”.
The screening on Wed 25 Apr will be introduced by Dr Rebecca Jarman, University of Leeds.
The intro will be BSL interpreted and the film includes English subtitles. BSL interpreters for the festival will be Alex McDonald and Siobhán Rocks.
