Too Late to Die Young

Tarde Para Morir Joven

Greek Premiere
In the early 1990s in Chile, a small group of families builds an autonomous community on the foothills of the Andes, far from the comforts of civilization. In this earthly version of utopia, three teenagers grow up with acceleration, eagerly waiting for the time they won’t be depending on their parents, in a country that is about to turn the page after the end of the Pinochet dictatorship. Αn inmost sensorial wandering through the landscapes of memory, where every wall or physical border has collapsed, becomes a collective portrait of a generation that learned to live with the melancholy of personal and political illusions.
