Chilean Film Weekend in Bucharest

Five Chilean feature film debuts will be screened Friday to Sunday at Bucharest’s Union Cinema in the “Opera Prima: Chilean Film Weekend” event, the Cervantes Institute informs. The Chilean Film Weekend means three days dedicated to Chile’s cinema, represented by five feature film debuts signed by Chilean artists who honour, question, undermine and end up reinventing Latin American film tradition. The features approach subjects such as the fascination of football, curses concealed within a musical score, the nostalgic fragrance of old-time radio or are reminiscent of cine-verite with a social or psychological leaning. The event is organized by the Chilean Embassy and the Cervantes Institute in Bucharest, with the support of the Chilean Culture Ministry and the Romanian National Film Archive. The programme includes Pablo Larrain’s “Fuga”, Roberto Artiagoitia’s “Radio Corazon, Historias del Chacotero Sentimental”, Sebastian Lelio’s “La Sagrada Familia”, Matias Bize’s “Sabado” and Andres Wood Montt’s “Historias de Futbol”. The films will be presented in the original version, with English subtitles.
