Italian Dystopian Thriller ‘Mondocane’ Gets Digital Release Dates from Kino Lorber

Kino Lorber has announced home release dates for Mondocane, a dystopian thriller and the feature debut of Italian writer-director Alessandro Celli.

The film, an official selection during the 2021 Venice International Film Festival Critics’ Week, will be available June 7 for rental or purchase, at a premium price, on most major digital platforms, including Vudu, Prime Video and Apple TV, as well as Kino Now.

A general VOD release will follow on June 28.

The film is set in the not-too-distant future on Italy’s southern coast, where the city of Taranto has become a toxic wasteland ruled by warring gangs and surrounded by barbed wire. Best friends Pietro and Cristian dream of escaping their hardscrabble existence for a better life in nearby New Taranto. Opportunity knocks when Hothead, the charismatic and dangerous leader of a local gang called the Ants, recruits the two boys and gives them everything they fantasized about: money in their pockets, a family and a father figure.

The friendship begins to splinter, though, as Cristian displays a surprising talent for mayhem and quickly rises through the ranks. With a new female friend pushing them further apart, an obsessed cop hounding the gang, and Hothead becoming increasingly unhinged, the boys barrel toward a confrontation that will determine if their bond is strong enough to survive.
