We have 10 double passes to the advance screening of "Monsters" on Thursday, November 4th, at 7 PM at the Scotiabank Theater in Montreal, Quebec.
Six years ago, NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear there and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain "the creatures"... Our story begins when a journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.
"Monsters" was shot with just a four-person crew. The team traveled through Guatemala, Belize and Mexico picking locations and shooting as they found them, using a cinéma vérité and guerrilla style of filmmaking. A unique sci-fi thriller about extraterrestrials, "Monsters" is also an insightful political commentary and a thrilling example of what can be done with ingenuity on a minimal budget.
To win, all you have to do is email us the answer to this question: Who directed "Monsters"?
Please include your first and last name. The first 10 people to answer the question correctly will win a double pass for the film.
