As a child, I had an idol: my aunt Adriana. In 2007, she was detained and I found out she had worked for DINA, the secret police of dictator Pinochet. Later, she fled the country while facing a judicial process for the murder of the communist leader. Now, my aunt is living a nightmare. In Australia, the Chilean residents request their extradition and march against her. The case has caused a media uproar. I have access to the aggressors of dictatorship and I’m willing to reach the ultimate consequences in order to know the truth and who my aunt Adriana really is.

About the 7th Annual FICG in LA: 

FICG in LA is a window into the world of contemporary Mexican and Ibero-American cinema and it is an extension of the Guadalajara Film Festival. The festival is designed for people to come and explore the diverse regional narratives of Mexican and Ibero-America cinema, and to help critically acclaimed films from these regions reach a wider audience.

The goal of the festival is to increase access and visibility of Mexican and Ibero-American cinema; facilitate the exchange of ideas through storytelling and socially relevant themes; create a bridge between film industries in Mexico, the U.S. and Canada; spark new collaborations among international filmmakers and strengthen the presence of Mexican and Ibero-American cinema in the U.S., as well as in other parts of the world. In addition to film screenings followed by Q&A sessions with filmmakers and talent, galas and special recognition awards to some key Latino and US Latino talent, FICG in LA is hosting again its industry initiatives this year.
