LOS REYES at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival

  • Cinema 4 — Durham Convention Center 301 West Morgan Street Durham, NC, 27701 United States (map)

(Bettina Perut, Iván Osnovikoff,  Chile/Germany, 2018, 78 min. In Spanish with English subtitles)

“Los reyes is Spanish for “the kings,” and in a public park in Santiago, Chile, two dark-haired stray mutts, Football and Chola, are the titular monarchs (more accurately, king and queen). There’s a lot to do: Between naps, they persecute the outrageous trespasses of bicycles, mopeds, and donkeys and confiscate empty plastic bottles and old tennis balls. Among their subjects are the park’s shiftless skateboarding set, whose overheard conversations give the film a series of disconnected human tangents. Mostly, though, Los Reyes is a patient and close study of two dogs. Really close: Wet noses, tongues, paws, and flies come in for spooky macro-lens shots. But it’s the dogs’ hearts we get closest to. Directors Bettina Perut and Iván Osnovikoff bring playful edits and a clever narrative structure to the story of an entirely public yet largely unnoticed friendship. “
