Late to Die Young
Fall Grants 2017 - Post-Production Stage
Current project status: POST-PRODUCTION
The summer of 1990 in Chile. A small group of families live in an isolated community right below the Andes, between dry dirt roads and dusty trees, building a new world away from the excesses of the distant city. Neighbors Sofía (16) Clara (10) and Lucas (16) struggle with their parents, first loves, and fears, while they prepare a big party for New Year’s Eve with hope for some new beginnings. ‘Late to Die Young’ is the portrait of a group of people who try to isolate themselves from the dangers of the city, but are instead confronted by those of nature.
