After some weeks members of the queer scene in Medellín in Colombia were cast for a vampire movie, the film’s protagonist -Camilo Najar – dies of a heroin overdose at age 21. As the youth in Colombia grapple with suicide and drug overdoses, Anhell69 tries to explore this generation’s “nonfuture” mindset.
