Intro: Chile Now!
Now! is a series of programmes devoted to bringing together new films from regions that otherwise have a hard time reaching our screens. The programmes aim to deal with hot topics and current state of affairs, told from an insider’s point of view.
“The search for an alternate vision of pre-displayed reality brings together seven short films that try to find meaning within the outskirts of Chilean society. Urban landscapes, queer subcultures, and virtual violence are explored through the textures of imperfection. Fictionalised fragments of a possible future meet found footage of adolescent angst and animated digressions. In Chile Now!, we navigate through the different relationships that people have towards the images that they create and those that they cannot control.”
