Chilean presence this year includes the participation of the documentary short film “Muerte Blanca"(White Death), directed by Roberto Collío and “Dos Disparos” (Two Gun Shots), by the Argentinean Martín Rejtman, a co-production of Argentina, Chile, Germany and The Netherlands.

The first, focuses on a real story that happened in Antuco (Bio-Bio Region), where a group of Chilean army soldiers died during a mountain mission in the crude winter. The second is the awaited feature by the Argentinean director, after more than 10 years from his last production.

The film’s producer, Isabel Orellana and the director, Roberto Collío, will present “Muerte Blanca”. The film “Dos Disparos” will be presented by director Martín Rejtman, Augusto Matte (Jirafa Productions) and the actress, Manuela Martelli.

Pardi di Domani is the name of the short film competition in Locarno, “Muerte Blanca” is aiming for a space among the winners. This section gathers young talents that have not tried their luck with features films yet. There are two separate competitions, one for Swiss films and another for international productions.

"Dos Disparos"


Dos Disparos” is part of the official selection in competition with 16 films, 13 that are world premieres; they all compete for the Pardo d’oro award. The Chilean delegation includes the producer Clara Taricco, the Valdivia International film festival artistic delegate Erick González, and Constanza Arena, CinemaChile’s executive director, who leads the mission.

ProChile’s contribution through its Sector Trademark program is vital for this task, making it possible to internationalize the audiovisual sector under one national brand, along with the support of the National Council for the Arts and Culture (CNCA), and the Arts and Audiovisual Industry Council (CAIA), with their Program to Support International Market Attendance.
