La Contadora de Peliculas

The film is set in the 1960s in a town in the Atacama Desert (Chile). In one of the most arid places on earth, where the inhabitants live in poverty, father Medardo works in a potassium nitrate mine to support his wife and children. Sunday is the highlight of the week because that’s when they put on their best clothes to go to the movies. Maria Margarita, the youngest of four children, has a special gift: she excels at retelling films. That talent is discovered first by her parents and then by the entire village. The young film narrator not only manages to win the hearts of the villagers, but in doing so she also changes the fate of her family. An adaptation of the novel by the lauded, Chilean writer Hernán Rivera Letelier.

After the movie, we’ll treat you with a glass!
