Chile 2004. Director/writer Andres Wood.
This emotive drama views the story through the eyes of a boy from a disadvantaged background who is awarded a place in a prestigious school.
A charismatic left leaning teacher inspires the pupils to aspire to a better life in an egalitarian world.
As this event happens just as Allende is about to be ousted by the right wing Pinochet forces, the outcome is a metaphor for what happened to Chile.
The boy’s friendship with a rich pupil is the engrossing heart of this story.
