‘The King of the World’ to premiere on Netflix in The Americas

Netflix has acquired Laura Mora’s drama ‘The Kings of the World / Los reyes del mundo’ in the Americas. The film will premiere on the streamer in Colombia and Mexico after local releases.

It stars Carlos Andrés Castañeda, Davidson Andrés Flórez, Brahian Stiven Acevedo and Cristian Camilo David Mora. It has been written by Mora, along with María Camila Arias.

According to the official logline:

“The Kings of the World / Los reyes del mundo is a film about the disobedience, friendship and dignity that exist in resistance. Rá, Culebro, Sere, Winny and Nano. Five boys who live on the streets of Medellín. Five kings with no kingdom, no law, no family, set out on a journey in search of the promised land.

“A subversive tale told through a wild and endearing clan, somewhere between reality and delirium. A journey to nowhere, where everything happens.”

The film was awarded the Golden Shell for best film at the San Sebastian Film Festival and is Colombia’s official selection for the 2023 Oscars Best International Feature category.
