Description

Executive produced by Joshua Oppenheimer, this poignant portrait reveals the dark truth behind Chile’s seemingly idyllic, tourist-friendly German colony, Colonia Dignidad. Led by a cruel cult leader for more than 40 years, it remains the home of several generations of perpetrators and victims, inexplicably coexisting without reckoning with decades of abuse. Filmmakers Marianne Hougen-Moraga and Estephan Wagner offer a gentle exploration of the community through the experiences of its surviving members.

Winner: DOX:Award, CPH:DOX (Copenhagen International Documentary Festival)

Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with Estephan Wagner, Marianne Hougen-Moraga (Directors), immediately following the film.
