El Club (Chile, 2015)
International Film Festival
A group of Catholic priests of various ages lives together with Mónica, a nun, in a house on the Chilean coast. When they are not praying and atoning for their sins, they train their greyhound for the next race. What on earth has brought them here, practically to the end of the world, where a stiff breeze constantly blows?
Directed and co-written by Pablo Larraín, El Club brings dark secrets to light and metes out just punishment. The film’s many awards include the Grand Jury Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival and Best Director, Best Ensemble and Best Screenplay at the Chicago International Film Festival.
