Chile, France, Germany, Spain | 2019 | Théo Court

WHITE ON WHITE film still

A photographer is summoned by a powerful landowner in 19th-century Tierra del Fuego to take pictures of his child bride. He stays on to document the workings of the man’s vast estate and, in doing so, inadvertently becomes complicit in the horrors of colonialism. This haunting Chilean Oscar submission stars Alfredo Castro, memorable in many Pablo Larraín films. 100% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes (as of 12/6). “Critic’s Pick…Distressingly beautiful and subtly provocative…Considers the casual violence of image-making against a 19th-century backdrop of flesh-and-bones barbarism.” –NY Times. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 100 min.
