Everardo González follows up his shocking 2017 Devil's Freedom with another strikingly original exploration of Mexico's fabric of organised crime.

This time, he embeds us into the world of the most fragile link on the chain: kids. The youngsters he follows – collectively anonymised as Ernesto – have been drawn into the pervasive, enticing world of the cartels, where guns are readily available and there’s money to be earned.

González’s cameras, mounted just behind their heads, peer into the obscured world around them as they detail their lives, their crimes and the limited options for escape.

Pushing the boundaries of documentary-making, as well as of comfort, A Wolfpack Called Ernesto is an unforgettable, searing insight into the world of these young sicarios.
