Our take

This psychedelic journey through Peruvian popular youth culture, which won the Tiger award at the Rotterdam Film Festival, uses digitally distorted imagery to create a subtly political and aesthetically bizarre viewing experience. Prepare to dive deep into the perverse hollows of the internet.
