DIRECTOR: Pablo Larraín - CHILE

A meditation on justice and the Catholic Church, Larraín’s darkly comic, but no less angry, film presents the moral dramas of four exiled priests who live together in a secluded house in a seaside town.

Golden Globe nominee. (98 mins.)

Filmography: No (2012), Post Morten (2010), Tony Manero (2008)
