Dir Alex Anwandter / Chile 2016 / 82min
With Sergio Hernández, Andrew Bargsted, Jaime Leiva, Edgardo Bruna
Dance student Pablo lives with his father Juan, a manager at a mannequin factory, in their drab, homophobic suburb of Santiago. He has a secret affair with a member of the neighbourhood's street gang and dreams of starring in his favourite reality TV show with his best friend Mari, while his father struggles to become partner in the company he worked at for the last 25 years. One night, Juan and Pablo's lives change forever, and for the first time, Juan faces the harsh reality his son experiences on a daily basis.
Inspired by true events, Alex Anwandter's impressive debut feature skilfully tells a distinctly South American story with a naturalistic approach and great sensitivity, reminiscent of Dolan and Fassbinder.
