The documentary “Los Reyes” (NONFY Documentaries) celebrates its German premiere at Dok.fest Munich (May 8-19, 2019). The film tells the story of the Chilean skatepark-youth in Santiago from the perspective of two street dogs Chola and Football. The two strays listen to the conversations of the teenagers, who day after day hang out on their boards in their territory, drinking beer, smoking and smoking weed.
“Los Reyes” (English “The Kings”) is the eighth documentary film by the two filmmakers Bettina Perut and Ivan Osnovikoff. At the centre of their work is the film as a plastic and social investigation. UCM.ONE brings “Los Reyes” to German cinemas in late summer.

They listen to the conversations of the teenagers who hang out every day in their territory, drinking beer, smoking and smoking weed: the trouble with their parents, the problems at school, the parties of the last weekend or the business plans with edible cannabis products. Just bark at the police on horseback, howl with the sirens, then take a nap in the shade, just make sure the tennis ball doesn’t get lost again. Chola and football are street dogs that are at home in the oldest skate park of the Chilean capital Santiago. With “Los Reyes” (“The Kings”), the filmmakers tell the story of the Chilean skatepark youth from the perspective of two adorable strays.
