Synopsis: A funeral car cruises the streets of Medellín, while a young director tells the story of his past in this violent and conservative city. He remembers the pre-production of his first film, a B-movie with ghosts. The young queer scene of Medellín is cast for the film, but the main protagonist dies of a heroin overdose at the age of 21. ‘Anhell69’ explores the dreams, doubts and fears of an annihilated generation and the struggle to carry on making cinema.
