La Visita

VIP ticket includes first entry, reserved couch seating, and access to VIP patio and reception

A Bergman-esque masterwork of familial drama, Mauricio López Fernández’s La Visita presents an eerily calm, civil look at what happens to a conservative Chilean family when their prodigal son returns as a woman, for her father’s funeral. Anchored by an unshakable performance from Daniela Vega as the wayward child, and imbued with the patience, understanding, maturity and most importantly, comedic instincts, of familial drama-obsessed filmmakers such as Arnaud Desplechin and Aki Kaurismäki, La Visita feels far more like the work of a seasoned filmmaker than a debut.

Dir. Mauricio López Fernández, 2014, DCP, 82 min.
