South America has a great track record of producing some excellent gay-themed films in the past few years. Hopefully that will continue with the Chilean movie, Cola de Mono.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘It’s Christmas Eve, 1986, and Borja is a precocious teenager with a passion for film. As his extended family comes together to celebrate the holiday, the combined forces of the suffocating Chilean heat, free-flowing drinks, and repressed desire contribute to the eruption of long-held secrets.’
The film is due for release on DVD and VoD in the UK on November 26th. Ahead of that it receives its UK premiere this week at the Iris Prize Festival in Cardiff on 11 October. To give you a taste of what looks like it could be a rather intriguing and sexy movie, you can watch the trailer below.
