Cinemaattic | Chile 🇨🇱 Contemporary cinema from Chile Latin American Resistance Songs 🎵 and (yes!) best Chilean cuisine 🥑🌯 FILMS -With last year’s Oscar win for A Fantastic Woman, Chile established itself as a powerhouse when it comes to Latin American cinema. That should have come as no surprise to anyone following Chilean directors’ trajectories. With lauded work by the likes of Pablo Larraín, Pablo Trapero, Dominga Sotomayor, Sebastian Lelio, and Marialy Rivas, among others, Chile has been producing excellent movies that grapple both with the country’s dark past and imagine an even brighter future.Whether you’re looking to dive into a country’s filmography that remains all too new for you, or eager to revisit Chilean landscapes, we are bringing you a bunch of film reasons to understand why Chile is such a hot hub for films. We present a handcrafted selection of modern Chilean Short-Films that we love.Films that featured recently in top festivals of the likes of Berlinale, Clermont-Ferrand, Semaine de la Critique - Cannes films that are damn brilliant.MUSIC - RED TRIOFrom Victor Jara to Maria Elena Walsh. RED TRIO is a band comprising Eileen Karmy (flute, cuatro, and vocals) José Rojas (percussion, vocals) and Martín Farías (electric guitar, vocals) who play a repertoire of Latin American folk songs with a hint of Resistance! spirit in refreshing arrangements. International Solidarity and popular songs from traditional Latin American songbook.FOOD -Once again we say it loud! Don’s dine before Cinemaattic as Chilean Street Food will be available at the bar.
