Episode Notes

Kids doing bad. Youth and rebellion, and the consequences of violence and the power dynamics within groups. In Nocturama, a group of young people in Paris plan and execute a series of bombings, examining the ideologies and motivations driving their actions. Monos, set in the Colombian jungle, follows a group of child soldiers and their relationships with one another as they are tasked with guarding a kidnapped American engineer. Both films examine the complexities of group dynamics and the blurred lines between right and wrong, as well as the use of violence as a means of resistance or control. The stylish visuals and unique narrative structures of both films add to their exploration of these themes, creating a thought-provoking and memorable viewing experience.
