From debuting filmmaker Reinaldo Marcus comes the hard hitting aclaimed drama Monsters and Men

 

MONSTERS AND MEN premiered at Sundance and won the Special Jury Award for Outstanding First Feature and screened at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. Altitude Film Distribution have partnered with platinum selling artist Drake to jointly release the film in the UK & Ireland.

Shot in Brooklyn, NY, Monsters And Men features John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman, Ballers), up-and-coming actor Kelvin Harrison Jr. (Mudbound, It Comes At Night, The Wolf Hour) and star of Broadway’s Hamilton Anthony Ramos.

Monsters And Men tells a ripple-effect narrative: from an eye-witness (Ramos) who captures a shooting on his phone, an African-American police officer (Washington) battling with his conscience to stand up against his fellow officers, to a local high school student (Harrison Jr) who transforms from passive bystander to vehement activist. With fluid cinematography that’s alert and expressive, the film explores the ramifications of such an event in a terrifying and poetic way.

Monsters and Men delves deep into issues that both the US and the wider world face with stereotypes and prejudice at the top of the agenda’

‘John David Washington is at his forceful best in this racially-charged drama from debuting filmmaker Reinaldo Marcus Green that uses the perspective of three persons of colour to examine the shooting of an unarmed black man by a white cop’
