CHILE 1976

Special Presentation; North American Premiere

aka 1976
The directorial debut of Chilean actress Manuela Martelli (IL FUTURO, MACHUCA), 1976 is a heart-pounding thriller about one woman's political awakening, set during the early days of Augusto Pinochet's brutal dictatorship. Carmen (Aline Kuppenheim, who co-starred with Martelli in MACHUCA) is a wealthy woman with impeccable taste and charitable affiliations, but little awareness of the political turmoil and violence happening around her. But when a local priest unexpectedly asks for her help with Elías, an injured young man he has been taking care of, it soon becomes clear that this is no ordinary charity case. As Carmen becomes aware that Elías is in hiding, pursued by the Pinochet regime as a member of the resistance, she is thrown into a dangerous situation that aligns her with the opposition movement and challenges everything she thought she knew about Chilean society and her place within it. Blending an astute character study with Hitchcockian suspense and political intrigue, the film boasts among its producers acclaimed Chilean filmmakers Dominga Sotomayor (TOO LATE TO DIE YOUNG) and Andrés Wood, who directed Martelli in 2004's MACHUCA. Official Selection, 2022 Cannes and San Sebastián film festivals.
