Film Website



Santiago de Chile. 18-year old Jesús lives alone with his father Hector in a flat with only the TV to drown out the silence between them. They have nothing to say to each other. The rest of the time Jesús dances in a K-Pop band, hangs around with his friends, takes drugs, watches violent videos and has sex in public places, always looking for the next kick. After he and his gang one night almost beat a young man to death, Jesús confides in his father. The incident brings the two closer than they’ve ever been – and will also separate them for ever. Jesús is a radical father-son drama, excessive and explicit, and is in competition at this year’s San Sebastián Festival.


In 2008, Fernando Guzzoni (*1983) won awards at several festivals for his documentary La Colorina. His debut feature Carne de Perro was also a hit at festivals in 2012 and in Göteborg won the Ingmar Bergman Prize for Best Film.
