Anhell69 Theo Montoya

Anhell69 is the Instagram handle of a friend of filmmaker Theo Montoya, who wished to give his friend a leading role in a B-movie about ghosts mingling with the living in the city of Medellín, Colombia. But a week after his audition, he died of an overdose, giving the abandoned project a dark new meaning; its new purpose is to pay tribute to this friend and others like him. Living day to day, the young people of these queer communities cannot imagine the future. They share a nihilistic vision of existence, placing their lives dangerously in the hands of fate. Lying in a coffin in the back of a hearse, Montoya’s corpse tells of the melancholy of a generation ravaged by despair and disillusionment.
