The Winds Know I'm Coming Back Home

José Luis Torres Leiva, Chile 2016, 103 Min., OV with English subs
Followed by a talk with Víctor Cubillos

In the 1980s a young couple disappeared in Chiloé, an island in the south of Chile. The myth surrounding the story inspires the acclaimed Chilean director Ignacio Agüero to make a film about it. Years later, Agüero travels to Chiloé in search of locations and actors. José Luis Torres Leiva accompanies Agüero in his documentary, discovering the special character of the landscape while revealing the connection between small events and major social and political traumas.

Victor Cubillos studied Journalism in Santiago de Chile and Film Theory at FU Berlin. In 2012, he founded CasaVera Films. He has produced and directed the mockumentary April 31st and Morales, el reformador.
