Cool and understated on the surface, this is in fact a deeply disturbing film—a riff on perversion and politics that will shake up your notions of justice. Mariana (Antonia Zegers) is the spoiled scion of a logging magnate; rich, petulant and entitled, she’s nonetheless a fascinating protagonist. When she discovers that her riding coach Juan (Alfredo Castro) is accused of committing brutal acts during Chile’s dark past, she has a puzzling response. Winner of the 2017 Horizontes Latino Award at San Sebastián. Film Only: $15/$13; Film + Party at SFU Woodward's World Art Centre with live music by RevoluSon (from Guanajuato, Mexico): $20/$18.
