A rare chance to see this major work of Uruguayan cinema. Co-directed by Juan Pablo Rebella and Pablo Stoll, this low-budget, laid-back slacker comedy follows the misadventures of three teenage friends on one lazy summer’s day in Montevideo. Leche, Javi, and Seba are still up from the night before, drifting around town, drinking beer and avoiding responsibility. Echoing the films of Richard Linklater, Kevin Smith and early Jim Jarmusch, Rebella and Stoll combine these influences to create a unique portrait of urban life in Uruguay. With style and humour, 25 Watts perfectly captures the boredom of youth.

‘25 Watts is one of very few features ever to have been made in (Uruguay) — no more than 20 in its history, and less than three in the last two years… The country’s relative obscurity is given props in the film, when it’s revealed that there is only one Uruguayan in the Guinness Book of World Records — a guy who clapped his hands for five days straight.’ Mark Peranson, Indiewire
