Los Frikis

A group of punk rock teenagers from Havana deliberately inject themselves with HIV to escape the
oppression of 1990s “Special Period” Cuba and gain entrance to the plentiful beachside paradises of Castro’s
fabled sanitariums for the dying and infected.

Directed by Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz, directors of the critically acclaimed film, The Peanut Butter Falcon, and co-produced by Oscar-winning duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
