The Night of the Beast

Friendship, dreams, and Iron Maiden

It's 2008 and Iron Maiden are performing for the first time in Colombia. Best mates Vargas and Chuki are metal heads and have managed to get a hold of two precious tickets. The two friends often seek a quiet comfort in music and each other that they don’t get from their parents. Full of expectations before the historic event the two wander along the streets of Bogotá, but then disaster strikes. They get mugged. The muggers rob them of their priceless tickets and their dream of seeing Iron Maiden live. They desperately try to get their tickets, and their chance to see the concert, back. In the process even their friendship is tested.

A moving tale of friendship, vulnerability and being there for your best friend.  The Night of the Beast is director Mauricio Leiva-Cock's first feature film.
