As of today, the acclaimed documentary “Los Reyes – Königliche Streuner” (English title: “Los Reyes“) by directors Bettina Perut & Iván Osnovikoff is available on DVD in Germany, Austria and Switzerland through UCM.ONE‘s NONFY Documentaries label.
Los Reyes (“The Kings”) is the oldest skate park in the Chilean capital Santiago. This film, however, is not primarily about the skaters, but about the true kings of this microcosm: Futbol and Chola, two inseparable stray dogs who have made their home in the park among speeding skateboards and noisy teenagers. The younger and livelier Chola loves to play with the balls that are everywhere. Futbol, the older of the two, is always carrying something around in his mouth and finds great fun in dragging things around and gnawing on them. The teenagers around them come from very different, sometimes difficult backgrounds. They all have their own stories and problems, which you follow in the background in their conversations, while the camera captures the subtle interaction between the two dogs as they nap, chase a ball or just sniff around.
“Los Reyes – Königliche Streuner” (English title: “Los Reyes“) is a meditative, almost fairytale-like and at the same time very touching documentary that tells a whole world just by observing two dogs.
“Los Reyes – Königliche Streuner” (English title: “Los Reyes“) had its theatrical release nationwide on July 8, 2021, distributed by UCM.ONE on the NONFY Documentaries label.
