Reinaldo Marcus Green is a big guy with a big smile. His film Monsters and Men has a big heart like his and an intriguing narrative, paired with a very effective direction. He wanted to tell a tragically usual story from different perspectives as there can be more than one victim and more than one guilt.

Monsters and Men: It is a night like any other in Brooklyn but on a street corner in the Bed-Sty neighborhood, an unarmed black man is killed after a confrontation with the police. The episode becomes the starting point for a complex investigation, which involves a police district and a neighborhood in which the community is very tight. Also involved in the affair is an eyewitness who filmed the aggression with his smartphone, a police official and a young student who is a rising baseball star. Through their eyes, we will come to a deeper understanding of a community unsettled by racial tensions, which is fighting for a better future.
