Uruguayan writer-director Rodrigo Plá incorporates political undertones into each of his feature films, and it looks like he’ll be operating on his most visceral playing field yet in “A Monster With A Thousand Heads.” The drama will open the Orizzonti Competition at the 72nd Venice Film Festival and stars Jana Raluy, Sebastian Aguirre Boeda and Hugo Albores.
Adapted by Laura Santullo from her own novel, “A Monster With A Thousand Heads” centers on Sonia, who devises a desperate plan to save her husband and access the medical treatment he needs to survive. Her journey puts her in contact with a corrupt insurance office and its complicit representatives, leading her and her son down a rabbit hole of violence.
