Latent Image

Imagen latente
This passionate, cathartic, autobiographical film was made clandestinely in Chile during 1986 and 1987, when Pinochet was in power. It chronicles the story of Pedro, an apolitical ad photographer who becomes obsessed with the disappearance of his older political activist brother a decade earlier. Belatedly, Pedro begins suffering "the guilt of the survivor" which compels him to risk serious danger and arrest through his attempts to investigate his brother's death.
