Tarde Para Morir Joven

Directed By: Dominga Sotomayor Castillo

April 6, 2018 / Spanish / 110 min

Sotomayor’s haunting third feature is a poetic exercise of memory and understanding. Shortly after the fall of the Pinochet regime, 16-year-old Sofía seeks an escape from the commune formed by her father and other idealists at the foot of the Andes. Sotomayor is the first woman ever to win best director at Locarno.
