Brimming with visual splendor, engrossing performances, and Juan Carlos Valdivia’s (American Visa) virtuoso direction, Southern District plants itself in the opulent mansion of a wealthy Bolivian family, steadily observing the rhythms of their excessively extravagant lives. They are not villains, but their careless hedonism and misguided sense of racial and social superiority lead them into deep waters when their money begins to dry up.
