Dominga Sotomayor’s latest award-winning film, Too Late to Die Young is a beguiling coming-of-age drama. Chile in the summer of 1990. As the country comes to terms with the end of Pinochet’s dictatorship, a group of adolescents living on a rural commune attempt to make sense of their own burgeoning desires and tangled relationships. Produced by Rodrigo Teixeira (Call Me By Your Name) and featuring a standout performance from a newcomer, Demian Hernández, as sixteen-year-old Sofia, this is a subtly observed and beautifully shot evocation of a time brimming with hope and trepidation.
