COW WHO SANG A SONG INTO THE FUTURE, THE 

[LA VACA QUE CANTÓ UNA CANCIÓN HACIA EL FUTURO]
As thousands of fish wash up dead along southern Chile's Cruces River following a chemical leak from a nearby paper mill, Magdalena (Mía Maestro, ALIAS, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES), a long-dead matriarch whose family owns a local dairy farm, emerges from the contaminated water to silently transform the lives of her daughter and grandchildren. When the sight of his dead wife gives Magdalena's widowed husband (Alfredo Castro, THE CLUB) a heart attack, their daughter Cecilia (Leonor Varela, BLADE II) returns to the family farm with her children, only to witness some extremely strange happenings among the livestock. Meanwhile, Cecilia's trans daughter (Enzo Ferrada) forms a unique bond with her newly resurrected grandmother as the mystery surrounding her death — a suicide — resurfaces (quite literally). Equal parts eco-ghost story, family drama and magical realist fable, director Francisca Alegría's assured debut feature — beautifully lensed by cinematographer Inti Briones (SONG WITHOUT A NAME, TOO LATE TO DIE YOUNG) — defies easy categorization, painting a simultaneously hopeful and mournful portrait of a family and an environment on the brink of either collapse or restoration. Official Selection, 2022 Sundance, Miami, Cleveland, San Francisco and Munich film festivals. DIR/SCR Francisca Alegría; SCR Manuela Infante, Fernanda Urrejola; PROD Tom Dercourt, Alejandra García. Chile/France/U.S./Germany, 2022, color, 98 min. In Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
