It is the 1980s, and prankish political activism is alive and well in rural Uruguay. When a new military governor is installed in the town of Mosquitos, pals Milo and Esmail protest by broadcasting discontent on the radio and purloining garden gnomes respectively. The governor retaliates against Milo with extreme prejudice, so Esmail launch a propaganda campaign that seeks justice for his buddy—and offers an alternative history of his nation.
Returning to Miami more than a decade after his excellent feature directorial debut, Guillermo Casanova (Seawards Journey) has crafted a biting satire that uses the conditions of the past to speak to the predicaments of the present, most notably the uses and abuses of fake news and the struggle to wrest control of political narratives from the powers that be.
This film is also featured in the 2018 Film Festival’s HBO Ibero American Competition Film Category.
