Children of the Cold War

hijos de la guerra fria, Los
In his debut feature film, Justiniano presents a comic and critical tale that points to the apathetic complicity of Chile's middle class with the Pinochet dictatorship. The feature’s two mid-level office workers in Santiago who fall in love and attempt to ignore the darker implications of a society teetering on the edge of moral and economic collapse. Their illusions fade as their romance is thwarted by the reality of repression that is everywhere and in everything.
