After Monsters and Men premiered at Sundance and won the Special Jury Award for Outstanding First Feature, Altitude Film Distribution have partnered with platinum selling artist Drake to jointly release the film in the UK & Ireland and we have an exclusive clip from the timely and poignant film.
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.
