Santa came early this year with Cola De Mono

It’s Christmas Eve, 1986, and Borja (Cristóbal Rodriguez-Costabal) is a precocious teenager with a passion for film. As his extended family comes together to celebrate the holiday, the combined forces of the suffocating Chilean heat, free-flowing drinks, and repressed desire contribute to the eruption of long-held secrets.

This hypnotic story from Chilean writer-director Alberto Fuguet is both an enticing family melodrama and an explicit erotic thriller about the ways in which passion and desire can discreetly control our lives – from our pop-culture tastes to our sexual fantasies.

Cola De Mono is available now on Dekkoo. Check out the trailer below.

 

 

Kinky Boots is a modest little movie that launched an award-winning Broadway hit

Inspired by a hilarious true story, Kinky Boots is the refreshing, feel-good comedy that launched the multiple Tony Award-winning Broadway musical.

Released in 2005, Joel Edgerton, Nick Frost and Chiwetel Ejiofor, none of whom had quite broken through to major movie stardom (but would soon).

For generations, the Price family has made very sensible, very conservative shoes for men. When young Charlie Price (Edgerton) inherits the struggling business, he turns to an unlikely new creative consultant to save the business from imminent bankruptcy: a sassy cross-dressing cabaret singer (Ejiofor), whose outrageous style and wild designs are a breath of fresh air in the stuffy old factory.

Check out the original trailer for Kinky Boots below and then strut your stuff on over to Dekkoo to watch the full film.

 

You’re invited to Prom Night

A gay version of John Hughes hit from the 80s? A mix of Carrie and Pretty in Pink? An examination of homophobia, school bullying and gender prejudice? A cinematic poem about young love and romantic ideals? The 24-minute short Prom Night is, surprisingly, all that and more.

The newest project from São Paulo-based filmmaker Lufe Steffen, who made a name for himself in Brazil with Sao Paulo in Hi-Fi, Prom Night blends documentary and fiction while bringing to life real stories about LGBT people and their experiences at prom.

Watch two of the film’s official teaser trailers below and visit us at Dekkoo where the film is now streaming. (Editor’s note: there are no subtitles available on these teaser videos, but the version we have made available on Dekkoo does have English subtitles).
