Sinopsis

Alexandra y Lucas, una pareja de jóvenes obreros en una zona industrial del Estado de México. Para entretener su realidad, consumen sustancias químicas en una choza que es el refugio del ruido e indiferencia social que viven a su alrededor. Sus viajes extáticos los llevan hasta un punto en el que Alexandra desaparece frente a los ojos de Lucas, y sus visiones se deterioran frente a un sistema de seguridad corrupto, tal como el mostro que los aprisiona.

About Colectivo Colmena

We are a film collective founded at Mexico City in 2016. Because of our necessity to tell urgent stories, we constantly explore and experiment with autogestive and collaborative ways of financing and producing our films. We have developed the short films “Libélula” (2016, Dir. José Pablo Escamilla, 67 Berlinale Generation,  Cinelatino Toulouse and Zubroffka), “Playa” (2017, Dir. Francisco Borrajo, 32th Mar del Plata, 68 Berlinale Generation), “White  Weapon” (2014, Dir. Mauricio Calderón (Lakino Berlin, NYC Short Film Festival, Morelia and Caloundra) and co-produced feature films “Sinvivir” (2018, Dir. Anaïs Pareto, FICM Winner), and “8 out of 10” (2018, Dir. Sergio Umansky,  winner at Warsaw’s Film Festival). MOSTRO is our first feature film, entirely developed and produced by the Collective. It will premiere at the 74th Locarno Film Festival in the Concorso Cineasti del presente competition.

We will start the shooting of our second feature film “Todos los incendios” by Mauricio Calderón Rico in 2022.
