CHILE , Brazil , Argentina , Netherlands | 110 minutes | 2018

Summer 1990. The Chilean people are finally throwing off the yoke of the repressive Pinochet dictatorship. In search of freedom, a handful of families have founded a small commune far from the big-city frenzy. Everyone is busy preparing for their New Year’s Eve party, which promises to be tough on young Sofia, given her mother’s usual glaring absence. The Chilean director deftly evokes the complex relations between parents and teens while brilliantly portraying the budding emotions of a sensitive, vulnerable yet determined young woman. The result is utterly authentic.
