Araña at Toronto and San Sebastian film festivals

” Chile, the early 1970s. A violent far-right nationalist group is looking to overthrow Allende’s government. Amid the fervour of crime and conspiracy, group members Inés, her husband Justo and their best friend Gerardo pull off a political crime that changes the course of history. The shadow of betrayal kept them apart for 40 years until Gerardo decides to jumpstart the nationalist cause of his youth.

Now, Inés is powerful businesswoman with a reputation to protect. As the police monitor Gerardo and his growing home arsenal, she will do whatever it takes to keep him from revealing her dangerous political and sexual past.”

The scenario of Andres Wood’s latest film  ‘Araña’ (Spider) for 20th Century Fox Chile.

It’s our third collaboration (Machuca 2004, The Good Life, 2008) and this time, Andres asked me to be Creative Consultant. The premier international screening of Araña is at the Toronto festival (TIFF) on 6 September and its European premiere at the the San Sebastian festival on 24 September. Sorry I cannot be there to see it but I wish Andres all the best of luck for for the film in the “Latin Horizons’ competition.
