Pablo Larraín was born in Santiago in 1976 and is one of the most important filmmakers in Latin America. His films draw an impressive portrait of his country Chile, from Tony Manero (2008) to Post Mortem (2010) and No (2012). Another characteristic of Larraín's cinema is the unusual perspective with which he approaches his subjects. Fuga (2006), his first work, was about a composer who went mad, while El Club (2015) is set in a beach house where priests who have «sinned» are sidelined. The film was awarded the Silver Bear for best direction at the Berlinale. The most recent two films were Neruda and Jackie (both 2016). Ema y Gastón had its premiere at the Venice Biennale and is unique in its entire narrative style.
