Mica Levi scores new Alejandro Landes film ‘Monos’

Mica Levi has created her fourth film score, for Monos, directed by Columbian-Ecuadorian filmmaker Alejandro Landes.

“The dark fantasy finds eight child soldiers stationed among unnamed Latin-American mountaintops where they spend their days training for combat in an obscure conflict with similarly obscure intentions. It’s never clear who the kids are fighting, or why.” – Polygon 
Tipped for Oscar success in 2020, the film was released in US cinemas on Sept 13th and UK cinemas on Oct 25th.
The score was released digitally on August 30th and got a vinyl release on Sept 13th.
There has been a very impressive amount of press around the score alone, as well as exceptional reviews for the film itself.
