SOCIETY OF THE SNOW
[LA SOCIEDAD DE LA NIEVE]
Returning to Spanish language cinema for the first time since his acclaimed debut THE ORPHANAGE (2007 AFI European Union Film Showcase), J. A. Bayona (THE IMPOSSIBLE, JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM) brings breathless thrills and emotional gravitas to the tragic, true story of Uruguayan Flight 571. In 1972, a chartered flight filled with members of the Old Christian Club rugby team en route to a match in Santiago, Chile, crashes into the cold depths of the frigid Andes Mountains while many perish in the crash, 29 of the 45 passengers miraculously survive the accident. But without much food and facing extremely hostile environmental elements, they're forced to make some terrifying choices if they want to stay alive. A ferocious survival thriller grappling with faith, SOCIETY OF THE SNOW showcases indelible performances from its young cast and an effective score by Michael Giacchino. Official Selection, 2023 AFI FEST and Venice film festivals. DIR/SCR/PROD J. A. Bayona; SCR Nicolás Casariego, Jaime Marques, Bernat Vilaplana, from the book by Pablo Vierci; PROD Belén Atienza, Sandra Hermida. Spain/Uruguay, 2023, color, 144 min.
