Prison in the Andes

Milwaukee Film Festival

The most ruthless right-hand men in Pinochet’s dictatorship are serving out sentences in jail for their crimes against humanity. More luxury resort than prison; they are watched over by guards who feel more like servants. After a TV interview, the men fear a transfer to a regular jail. They will do anything to stay put, descending into chaos and violence that echoes that of their regime that once gripped Chile.
