The City of Wild beasts
Best World Cinema Narrative – THE CITY OF WILD BEASTS
Directed by Henry E. Rincón
Tato is an orphan with no direction, a young rap lover. Together with his friends Pitu and La Crespa, he seeks to resist and find a different alternative to death and crime through the art of hip hop and street rap battles.
Tato must flee his neighborhood. His only option is to leave the city, and live with Octavio, a grandfather, a flower farmer, whom he does not know and who wishes to inherit his farming tradition from the countryside.
Two generations, two ways of life and a continuous sense of loss, death, and loneliness mark Tato’s life.
