During the summer of 1990 in Chile, a small group of families lives in an isolated community right below the Andes, building a new world away from the urban excesses with the emerging freedom that followed the recent end of the dictatorship. In this time of change and reckoning, the teenagers Sofía, Lucas and Clara struggle with their parents, their first love, and their fears as they prepare a big party for New Year's Eve. They may live far from the dangers of the city, but not from the ones of nature.
Singular Screens, the film programme curated by the Asian Film Archive (AFA) for Singapore International Festival of Arts 2019 (SIFA), features an international selection of Singapore premieres celebrating independent and singular visions from Singapore and around the world. Valuing the ingenious and the risk-taking in cinema, Singular Screens is diverse in representation and bold in putting together its palette of cinematic adventures. Screenings will be held at the Screening Room at SIFA’s Festival House and Oldham Theatre.
