Now that Chilean director Pablo Larraín's most recent film "No," a likely Oscar submission, was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics in Cannes and will show in Toronto, the director's 2010 film "Post Mortem" will be released on Blu-ray and DVD by Kino Lorber on August 24.

Larraín's "Tony Manero," "Post Mortem" and "No" comprise a trilogy about Chile during the reign of dictator Augusto Pinochet. "Post Mortem" debuted at Venice 2010 and was released theatrically by Kino Lorber last April. The synopsis for "Post Mortem" and trailers for all three films are below. Here's our Cannes interview with Larraín and "No" star Gael Garcia Bernal, plus Eric Kohn's review.

Mario (Alfredo Castro, Tony Manero) is an unassuming state employee who transcribes notes during autopsies. Furtive and lonely, he becomes obsessed with his neighbor, the dance hall girl Nancy (Antonia Zegers), who is involved with a group of left-wing activists. With the coup, and the death of President Salvador Allende, Nancy's friends are hunted down, and Mario's hospital becomes clogged with the bodies of dissenters. Soon the violence filters into Mario's psyche, and he begins to break down, much like his country.
