Cannes Critics’ Week Winner ‘La Jauria’ Gets First Trailer (EXCLUSIVE)

After screening at the Toronto International Film Festival and coinciding with its San Sebastian bow, Variety has been granted exclusive access to the trailer

for “La Jauria,” the first feature effort from award-winning Colombian director Andrés Ramírez Pulido (“El Edén”). The film tracks the visceral journey of two

estranged friends, Eliú (Jhojan Estiven Jimenez) and El Mono (Maicol Andrés Jimenez), who share an uneasy reunion after they’re sent to a remote and unconventional rehabilitation

center to serve their sentence for a vicious crime. There, they grapple with accountability, moral fortitude and redemption. This raises questions about the unfettered nature of

depravity looming in the thick, languid atmosphere.More from VarietyWith Netflix Hit 'Intimacy,' Disney+'s 'Balenciaga,' Basque Country Founds Premium TV SectorFrom

visually haunting scenic textures that collide with ethereal sound. “Since the writing of the script, we’ve tried to make the film not only heard and seen, but also

felt,” said Pulido. “Some of the elements that I decided to explore, from an aesthetic point of view, were the spatial and temporal “offscreen,” that’s where sound

plays a very important role in my film, creating a captivating atmosphere that plunges the viewer into a new universe,” he added.
