The Wind Knows That I’m Coming Back Home (El viento sabe que vuelvo a casa) (2016)
NAME OF FILM: THE WIND KNOWS THAT I'M COMING BACK HOME
DIRECTOR(S): José Luis Torres Leiva
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: In the early 1980s, a couple vanished without a trace in the woods of Meulín Island. Director Ignacio Agüero (This Is the Way I Like It II) had intended to shoot a documentary about this strange occurrence, but eventually abandoned the project. Now, he journeys to the area to shoot his first fiction film based on the events, and José Luis Torre Leiva follows Agüero as he speaks with locals about the legends that have arisen surrounding this mysterious occurrence in between scouting for locations and auditioning nonprofessionals, who often provide a source of tender comic relief. The film is also a meditation on the isolation of those living on Chile’s Chiloé Archipelago, capturing its unique and solitary landscapes.
