LOS REYES ("The Kings") is the oldest skate park in the Chilean capital Santiago. But the real kings of the park are the two stray dogs Futbol and Chola. The two inseparable strays have made their home among speeding skateboards and noisy teenagers in the park. The teens around them come from very different, sometimes difficult backgrounds. They all have their own stories and problems, which you follow in the background in their conversations, while the camera captures the subtle interaction between the two dogs. "LOS REYES is a bold and successful experiment: it puts the animals’ perspective at its center, not as a metaphor for anything human, but for its own ends." (The Guardian)
