In the mountains of Monterrey, Mexico, a small street gang named "Los Terkos" spend their days listening to slowed down cumbia music and attending dance parties, showing off their outfits, hairstyles and gang alliances. These different bands of disaffected youth refer to themselves as Kolombianos, combining the Cholo culture with Colombian music. Ulises Samperio (17), the leader of Los Terkos, tries to protect his friends from the nefarious elements of a quickly evolving drug/political war, but after a misunderstanding with a local cartel, he is forced to leave for Jackson Heights, Queens, a diverse immigrant community in New York City. Ulises tries to assimilate, but when he learns that his gang and the whole Kolombia culture is under threat, he questions his place in America and longs to return home. Written by PPW Films

Stunning photography captures captivating dancing of Cholombianos
28 May 2020 | by latinotoonsSee all my reviews

Stunning photography: a deft back and forth between Northern Mexico's harsh cement perifery and the neon of New York paints the no-nonsense story of an immigrant dancer from Monterrey's vibrant Kolombia subculture.
