BAD INFLUENCE (2016)
When rebellious teen Tano (Andrew Bargsted, YOU'LL NEVER BE ALONE) is sent from Santiago to southern Chile to live with his estranged father, he meets Cheo (Eliseo Fernández, OUT), a shy boy perpetually bullied for his indigenous origins. As the two outsiders bond over their troubles, the strange death of a Mapuche leader unleashes a spree of violence in the area, forcing the pair to unite further and become involved in a struggle that will transform them both. Claudia Huaiquimilla's extraordinary debut is a timely reflection of the ongoing Mapuche conflict, and the violent daily lives of a community threatened by corporations and government evictions.

DIR/SCR Claudia Huaiquimilla; SCR/PROD Pablo Greene; PROD Rebeca Gutiérrez Campos, Eduardo Villalobos. Chile, 2016, color, 89 min. In Spanish and Mapudungun with English subtitles. NOT RATED
