‘Monos’ has been described as a cross between ‘Lord of the Flies’ and ‘Apocalypse Now’. The film’s director, Alejandro Landes, joins us to discuss how he brought his uncompromising and timely vision to the screen.

Plus: we meet Steve Goodman, an electronic musical artist and head of London’s iconic Hyperdub record label, to learn more about a new subsidiary devoted to the audio essay – and why some things are best listened to together.
