Description Technical Specs

25 Watts is a shaggy, comedic look at young slackers in urban Uruguay.

Inspired by the American independent movement of the 1990’s, Juan Pablo Rebella and Pablo Stoll offer a unique take on the slacker lifestyle with 25 Watts. Beginning on a Saturday morning in Montevideo, the film follows Leche, Javi, and Seba as they toss back drinks and avoid work or responsibility.

Set over the course of 24 hours, the low-budget black-and-white film maintains a mellow yet probing attitude as it explores a particular neighborhood and its bizarre cast of characters. 25 Watts offers a rare cinematic glimpse into urban Uruguay through the eyes of those who know it best, the guys who don’t have anything better to do than bum around the place they call home.
