CHILE ’76 l Kino Lorber
Kino Lorber is pleased to present CHILE ’76, a captivating Hitchcockian suspense thriller from writer/director Manuela Martelli. To celebrate, they have unveiled the official trailer, which you can check out below.

Set during the early days of Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship, CHILE ’76 builds from a quiet character study to a gripping suspense thriller as it explores one woman’s precarious flirtation with political engagement. Carmen (Aline Küppenheim) leads a sheltered upper middle-class existence. She heads to her summer house in the off-season to supervise its renovation, while also performing local charitable works through her church.

Her husband, children, and grandchildren come back and forth during the winter vacation, bringing reminders of the world beyond. When the family priest asks her to take care of an injured young man he has been sheltering in secret, Carmen is inadvertently drawn into the world of the Chilean political opposition and must face real-world threats she is unprepared to handle, with potentially disastrous consequences for her and her entire family.

The film makes its New York premiere at New Directors/New Films on April 7 with Manuela Martelli in attendance. CHILE ’76 opens theatrically on May 5 at Film at Lincoln Center and IFC Center in NY and May 12 at Laemmle Theaters in LA, followed by national expansion.
