Director Laura Mora, who made a splash with her debut, Killing Jesus, joins forces with top Colombian producer-director Cristina Gallego (Birds of Passage, Oscar-nominated The Embrace of the Serpent) to deliver Kings of the World. The film follows five Medellín teenagers from the streets on a desperate journey of survival as it portrays with strong poetic undertones the reality of the injustice and exclusion suffered by those who lack basic rights such as a name, a family, a place and a date of birth. Kings of the World is destined to be one of the most relevant Latin American films of 2022.

Rá, Culebro, Sere, Winny and Nano, five street kids from Medellin, five kings without a kingdom, with no law and no family, looking for The Promised Land.  The five will embark on a trip to claim a piece of land that Rá inherited after a long process of land restitution. The Kings of the world is a subversive tale about a savage and lovely clan that transits between reality and delirium. A Journey to nowhere where anything can happen.
