Monos (Colombia)

Monos (which means monkeys as well as little kids and cute in Spanish), takes place on a Colombian mountaintop where eight child-soldiers armed with guns watch over a hostage (played by Julianne Nicholson) and a milk cow. The film tackles the subject of young guerrilla soldiers, often trained at a young age and pulled away from their families, living alone and terrorized by an adult figure who imparts orders by radio, resorting to violence and drugs in order to fill the void of love and compassion in their young lives.
