“A GENTLY STRIKING AND ACHINGLY TENSE DRAMA” Screen Daily
Lucia Puenzo’s striking Wakolda premiered in Cannes ‘Un Certain Regard, 2013’, and was immediately snapped up by the Toronto International Film Festival.
A deeply atmospheric and eerily gripping thriller, set in the stunning landscape of the Patagonian hills in the 1960s, about an innocent family who unknowingly welcomes a Nazi war criminal into their home.
When Nazi-hunting news reports start showing up on the TV, locals start sensing that something is wrong, and that the family is in danger.
