CITY OF WILD BEASTS
[LA CIUDAD DE LAS FIERAS]
In Columbian director Henry Rincón's (PASOS DE HÉROE) impressive second feature, Tato (Bryan Cordoba) is a newly orphaned teen struggling to figure out how and where to live in Medellín following his mother's death. An avid rapper and regular street jam battler, Tato is hoping not to be dragged into a life of crime in order to survive. When he falls behind on rent payments and a local gang comes for him, he has no choice but to run for the hills, fleeing the city to seek out his estranged grandfather Octavio (Óscar Atehortúa), a flower farmer living deep in the countryside. Soon immersed in an entirely different way of life, Tato finds himself embracing his roots, while continuing his fight to survive and find his own identity. Official Selection, 2021 Miami and Málaga film festivals. DIR/SCR/PROD Henry Rincón; PROD Ana María Mayo Rios. Colombia/Ecuador, 2021, color, 95 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
