Thursday Till Sunday (Dominga Sotomayor I Chile 2012 I 96 mins I screening start time: 7.30pm)
Told through the eyes of 10 year old Lucia, Thursday Till Sunday is the story of a broken family's final journey; a journey to the north of the country, and a journey to separation. Ana and Fernando take Lucia and Manuel on a trip to northern Chile over the course of a long weekend. Along the way in the back of the car, time is whiled away in playful naivety, while in the front of tensions between Fernando and Ana surface. The forced intimacy of the car's interior set against vast and arid Chilean landscapes reiterates and magnifies the claustrophobic isolation within this poignant tale of innocence and loss.
Cinémathèque* screens every 4th Wednesday at The Proud Archivist. Grab a drink to take into the screening and / or join us in the bar afterwards! Cinémathèque* occasionally also hosts special one-off events with guest speakers.
