It was announced this morning that the award-winning short film Los Huesos (The Bones), directed by Cristóbal León and Joaquín Cociña (The Wolf House), will be available to watch exclusively on MUBI globally from December 8, 2021.
The short film, which channels the transformative political energy of today’s Chile, was executive produced by none other than Ari Aster, director of Hereditary and Midsommar.

The Bones features an original score by violinist Tim Fain. It has been met with critical acclaim, winning the Orizzonti Award for Best Short Film at this year’s Venice Film Festival and the Critics’ Award for Best Official Selection Short Film at the Sitges Film Festival.
