DIRECTOR: Ivan Osnovikoff, Bettina Perut
Los Reyes is the oldest skate park in Santiago and it brings together teenagers from very different social and cultural backgrounds. Chola is young and vigorous and spends her days playing with balls that she throws to the pools in which skaters ride. Football is an old dog, but beautiful and energetic, that obsessively accompanies Chola in this game. The human world appears in stories of adolescents in transit to adulthood. We listen to their voices and see fragments of their bodies as part of the environment that surrounds the world of dogs. As Football grows old and Chola is left alone, the juvenile stories confront us with the rawness of a youth that does not find a place in our society.
A charmingly roundabout documentary born of curiosity, patience, and no small amount of inventiveness on the part of its authors...Peter Debruge, Variety
Dog lovers, rejoice! Los Reyes is an unflinching, beautifully shot and engrossing documentary about man's best friend.Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
There is something simultaneously sad and joyous to the movie's spotlight on their companionship. And it's precisely this complexity of feeling that makes Los Reyes one of the most rewarding dog movies I've seen to this day.Beatrice Loayza, Remezcla
