Los Reyes

In perhaps the most touching love story of the year, two stray dogs named Football and Chola playfully look after one another at the skatepark known as Los Reyes in the Chilean capital of Santiago. Not resorting to onscreen interviews or an overarching narrative, filmmaking duo Iván Osnovikoff and Bettina Perut artfully observe with a watchful eye as life unfolds through the antics of the two dogs and a rotating group of young skaters whose raw, sometimes drug-fueled stories provide the background soundtrack. Los Reyes is a poetic and unsparing look at an urban landscape shared equally by dogs and humans who together make this a communal space of refuge and dreams.
