The Settlers

Milwaukee Film Festival

Chile, 1901. Three horsemen embark on an expedition, tasked with securing a wealthy landowner’s vast property. Accompanying a British lieutenant and an American mercenary is mestizo marksman Segundo, who comes to realize their true mission is to violently “remove” the indigenous population. Equal parts harrowing and beautiful the film is a remarkable debut that won the FIPRESCI prize at the Cannes Film Festival, where it premiered.
