Los Reyes

by Iván Osnovikoff, Bettina Perut

Best of Fest

(Germany, Chile / 2018 / 78’)

Los Reyes park is located on the edge of the capital of Chile, Santiago: for the neighborhood's teenagers it's an authentic home away from home, a suburban hideaway where, amidst beers and laughter, they can voice their fears and hopes. Iván Osnovikoff and Bettina Perut's camera narrates the everyday life of this little universe with clear eyes, but to better understand it they have chosen two unexpected leads: the stray dogs of the park. The result? It couldn't be more romantic. It is precisely because of this original point of view that Los Reyes becomes a surprisingly poetic documentary, a perspective unlike any other the public has ever been accustomed to.
