Too Late to Die Young (Tarde para morir joven)
NAME OF FILM: TOO LATE TO DIE YOUNG (TARDE PARA MORIR JOVEN)
DIRECTOR(S): Dominga Sotomayor Castillo
STARRING: Demian Hernández, Antar Machado, Magdalena Tótoro
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: In this angular, sun-faded coming-of-age drama, Sotomayor Castillo excavates a certain feeling of youth in a teenage girl on the verge of adulthood: too old for naivete, too young for the hurt that comes with fledgling romance just outside the bounds of playground love. At a gathering of families seeking utopian, communal living in the mountains outside Santiago, 16-year-old Sofia (newcomer Demian Hernández) undergoes profound changes—her father increasingly distant, her mother nowhere in sight, and her slightly older love interest just out of firm grasp—scaffolding into a familiar feeling of tender malaise. As the harshness of the Pinochet regime began to fade from view in the early 1990s, Sofia—and so many like her—became an adult.
