Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Theo Montoya. 2022, 72 mins. Colombia. In Spanish with English subtitles. DCP. For his first feature film, a vampire movie about a dystopian city where ghosts coexist with the living, director Theo Montoya cast comrades from Medellín’s queer scene, with charismatic 21-year-old Camilo Najar for the starring role. A week later, Camilo died of an overdose. Picking up where the director’s celebrated short Son of Sodom (2020) left off, the grimly gorgeous hybrid film Anhell96 depicts a no-future generation torn apart by drugs and suicide, in a city defined by violence. After attending more funerals than birthdays among his circle of friends, Montoya descends into an existential void—while keeping the camera rolling. The result is a film without borders or genders, a self-defined trans film about all those people who don’t belong to anything or anyone.
