The Night of The Beast

July 11, 2021 9:15 pm

Feature Narrative | 2020 | Colombia, Mexico | 70 min | Directed by Mauricio Leiva-Cock | M-Appeal

Australian Premiere

Teenage metal-heads Chuki and Dona dream of seeing Iron Maiden, but when their favourite band come to Bogota for the first time not everything goes to plan in this coming-of-age comedy-drama.

The feature debut of Mauricio Leiva-Cock is a joy to watch, the young cast all deliver strong performances and there’s a real sense of the experience of being a teenager – the excitement and anticipation of a concert, the frustrations of family, the importance of friendship and a growing sense of responsibility. 

Told with a genuine appreciation for its protagonists and the world they inhabit, The Night of the Beast is a celebration of youth, finding your tribe, loving your family, and the special friendships that emerge in the final years of high school. 

“It’s a sweet love letter to those carefree heady days when the whole world revolved around your band and the big concert.” – We Are Movie Geeks 

Screens with the short film Rafael.
