Los Reyes

A film by Bettina Perut and Iván Osnovikoff | 2018 | 78 minutes

A magical documentary about two charismatic dogs, Chola and Football, who live in a skate park in Santiago, Chile. The park brings together teenagers from all different social and cultural backgrounds. LOS REYES shows us their world — the human world — from Chola and Football’s perspective. We hear stories of adolescence, of loves and romances, of school, and the pains of growing up. Hailed as “a doggone low-key crowdpleaser” (Hollywood Reporter) and “a beautiful film… that immerses us in a sense of life lived at the languid pace of an afternoon daydream” (The New York Times), LOS REYES is one of the most charming and original documentaries you’ll ever see.
