A kind of induced documentary that mixes fiction with reality, showing a different country from what can be seen in any tourist catalog... [Full Review in Spanish]

Fans of fierce, challenging indigenous cinema rejoice. It's not every day that you see a film from and depicting the life in the Dominican Republic, let alone one as intriguing as Cocote.

Nelson Carlo de los Santos Arias builds a film with a tragicomic spirit, which deals with extreme problems without falling into solemnity, even managing a surprising dose of black humor and absurdity. [Full Review in Spanish]

Nelson Carlo de Los Santos's first fiction feature is a dazzling collage of styles and approaches in which every scene feels different from the one that came before.
