HYBRID Grandmother, friend, anarchist and arsonist – a director portrays the life of her grandmother with cinematic chutzpah and explores the radical edges of her own existence. After a campaign of revenge against her ex-lover, 66-year old Nona escapes to her summer house in Pichilemu, a Chilean coastal town. While she dedicates herself to the deceleration of making pottery, a series of forest fires drives her neighbours from their houses. Is there a pyromaniac on the loose? Fear stalks the otherwise quiet and shady streets, the police are in the dark and wild speculation fuels the rumour-mill. And the more houses go up in smoke, the angrier Nona gets.
