The Settlers / Los Colonos

Series: Portland Latin American Film Festival

Chile, at the beginning of the 20th century. A wealthy landowner hires three horsemen to mark out the perimeter of his extensive property and open a route to the Atlantic Ocean across vast Patagonia. The expedition, composed of a young Chilean half-blood, an American mercenary and led by a reckless British lieutenant, soon turns into a “civilizing” raid.

Awards: World premiere at the 76th Cannes Film Festival on May 17, 2023. Competed for Un Certain Regard and Caméra d'Or, and alongside those was honored with the FIPRESCI Prize, becoming the first Chilean production to win that award.
