24.11.19 – 20.12.19
The year is 1990, the Chilean summer is warm, and the country is heading towards brighter times. 16 year old Sofía observes her father and his friends as they build a new village in the forest. Here they want to live a simple, idealistic life inspired by the Bohemians, a dream that has now finally become possible after the end of Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship . Too Late to Die Young, which is largely based on director Dominga Sotomayor Castillo's own experiences, confirms her position as one of South America's most interesting young directors.
