At a house party, a handsome man wanders around catching up with friends he has not seen for some years. A travel writer now based in Berlin, Andre appears to be living an exciting international life, and yet something has drawn him back home to Santiago. As the night goes on, we realize that a tragedy binds this group—an event that was also the impetus for Andre’s departure from Chile years ago. Moreover, there is someone at the party he goes to great lengths to avoid. But she is the very person he most needs to see. The weight of missed opportunities hangs in the air and we are left to contemplate: if one could turn back time, would the outcome be any different? (83 mins.)

Filmography: Sábado, una película en tiempo real (03), Juego de verano (04), Lo bueno de llorar (06).

Winner of the Spanish Goya Award for Best Spanish Language Foreign Film and this year’s Chilean submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

Sponsored by Nel Centro.


Interests: Oscar Submissions, Narrative Feature, Spanish Language.
