This film takes place at the oldest skate park in Santiago, Chile, and was intended to feature the teenagers who congregate there regularly. But over the course of roughly two years, the filmmakers discovered that while the skaters came and went — many of them prohibitively shy about being filmed — there were two characters that always seemed to be hanging about: a pair of stray dogs. And so they shifted the entire focus of the film and the inseparable canines became its protagonists. As the months passed, the adolescent skaters no longer minded being recorded. They even agreed to wear wireless mics, opening up about personal subjects — candid stories about smoking and selling weed, heated disagreements with their guardians, and run-ins with the corrupt local police — while the cameras were trained elsewhere, on the two street dogs, the true “kings” of Los Reyes skate park.
Doors will open 30 minutes prior to the screening for this general admission event.

Children’s International Film Fest (2pm) A wonderful collection of short films from around the world for the young and the young-at-heart. This screening will consist of two programs separated by a 15-minute intermission. The first set of films is aimed at children ages 3-7 (starts at 2pm, 60 minutes) and the second is aimed at ages 8-80 (starts at 3:15pm, 90 minutes). One ticket admits you into both programs, but you can feel free to attend only one half if you prefer. If you do not wish to purchase a day pass, purchase a ticket to the Children’s International Film Fest alone by clicking HERE.
Honeyland (5pm) The story of a Macedonian beekeeper, an amazing glimpse into a forgotten world. Honeyland is “as astonishing — as sublime and strange and full of human and natural beauty — as anything I’ve ever seen in a movie. It reminded me of The Lorax, Dr. Seuss’s great, prescient tale of ecological folly. – A. O. Scott, The New York Times. (90 min.)
