Movie Story

Chile’s Official Submission for International Feature Film at the 94th Academy Awards®


At the dawn of the twentieth century, Pedro arrives in Tierra del Fuego, a violent and hostile territory, to immortalize the marriage of a powerful landowner. Fascinated with the bride-to-be’s beauty, he betrays the rules and is left to face a land crawling with violence and marked by the genocide of its indigenous inhabitants.

Reviews

“Seductive, distressing and unforgettable.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“An exacting, disquieting film about the corrupting influence of beauty and power.” – Screen International

“Distressingly beautiful and subtly provocative, “White on White,” the slow-burn second feature from the Spanish-Chilean director Théo Court, considers the casual violence of image-making against a 19th-century backdrop of flesh-and-bones barbarism.” – The New York Times

“A loner photographer looks down on white settlers without realizing he’s part of the problem in a striking, ambiguous historical drama.” – The Guardian
