Los Perros

Feature Film | FR, CL 2017 | 94‘ | Spanish with English subs

Mariana lives a life of privilege. The well-off 42-year-old Chilean doesn’t have to work and spends her time on horse riding lessons, shopping and now and then signing some contracts her father puts in front of her. But her life takes a turn when she hears about her riding teacher being accused of committing crimes against opposition members under the Pinochet regime. Fascinated, she tries to find out more about these accusations – and finds out more than she bargained for. Like her countrymen Pablo Larraín and Patricio Guzmán, former documentary filmmaker Marcela Said focusses of the still virulent after-effects of her home country’s dictatorship. An icy mixture of thriller and character piece that lets no one off the hook.
