An award-winning meditation on the pointless violence affecting LGBTQ+ communities in Medellín, Colombia

Description

A standout at SXSW and the recipient of Outfest LA’s Grand Jury Award, this poignant docufiction takes a candid look at the senseless violence affecting LGBTQ+ people in Medellín, Colombia. Blurring the lines between fiction and reality, director Theo Montoya creates a compelling portrait of a generation of artists pushing to be heard, battling for survival, and refusing to fade into obscurity.

ANHELL69 seamlessly melds the personal with the universal, the artistic with the confrontational, and despair with unwavering resilience. The film is both a heartfelt tribute to Montoya’s friends and a plea for the well-being of an entire community.
