FILM: JUEVES DE CINE: MONOS (“MONKEYS”)

Thursday, February 27, 8-10 PM
Rutgers Cinema, (LIV)

MONOS, Alejandro Landes’ third feature, is a survivalist saga set on a remote mountain in Latin America. The film tracks a young group of soldiers and rebels who keep watch over an American hostage. The teenage commandos perform military training exercises by day and indulge in youthful hedonism by night, an unconventional family bound together under a shadowy force known only as The Organization. After an ambush drives the squadron into the jungle, both the mission and the intricate bonds between the group begin to disintegrate. Order descends into chaos and within MONOS the strong begin to prey on the weak in this vivid, cautionary fever-dream.

Presented by the Center for Latin American Studies, Jueves de Cine is a monthly series that features recently award-winning films in Latin American cinema.
