The Beasts
(As bestas)

  •   Rodrigo Sorogoyen
  •   Spain, France

In a remote village nestled deep in the lush, mountainous forestland of Galicia, French couple Antoine and Olga live a peaceful life, farming sustainably and rehabilitating old houses. The locals have tolerated the outsiders to a degree, but simmering tensions begin to boil over when Antoine becomes embroiled in local politics. As animosity intensifies, Antoine stands his ground, and the village conflict escalates beyond a point of no return. Rodrigo Sorogoyen (Stockholm, Mother) has crafted a gripping and primal thriller, in which masculinity teeters on savagery, blurring the line between human and beast.
