Spider Araña

Synopsis

In this gripping thriller, three young friends join a farright terrorist group intent on bringing down Allende’s Communist government. Almost 50 years after the violent coup, Justo and Ines, now husband and wife, enjoy a comfortable life as part of the country’s elite— until their former comrade Gerardo’s unexpected return. Toggling between 1970s and present-day Santiago, director Andrés Wood (Violeta Went to Heaven) spins a provocative tale of power, deception, and desire.

“This elegantly told tale of the diverging fates of a gang of right-wing radicals in the pre-coup d’état Chile of the early 70s is both as human and as political in its concerns as you’d expect from Wood.”
