Los Reyes del Mundo

Among the bright spots in contemporary Colombian cinema, Laura Mora moved into her third feature film this past autumn. With a rather fruitful filmography to date comprised of television and docu films, Los Reyes del Mundo (Kings of the World) sees Mora work with a significant alumni folks who mounted Birds of Passage. Inspired by Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Mobile Men, co-written by María Camila Arias, produced by Cristina Gallego (Birds of Passage) and Mirlanda Torres with some Euro co-production coin from Luxembourg and France, this sees the filmmaker return to a street youth portrait and once again working with non-professional actors – a tale about five young men from Medellín. Birds of Passage cinematographer David Gallego is also onboard – you can get a first look (here). Mora’s sophomore feature Killing Jesus landed her a trio of prizes at the San Sebastian film festival and it also premiered at TIFF.

Gist: This is about the marginalized who are excluded from the rest of humanity and who are seeking a place in this world.

Release Date/Prediction: Un Certain Regard selection could be for this third feature film.
