Selected as the Chilean entry for Best International Feature Film at the 92nd Academy Awards and making its world premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, powerhouse filmmaker Andrés Wood returns with his eighth film, the taut historical thriller Spider.

An unflinching movie that examines how the past can impact the present, Spider weaves together two separate timelines. In the 1970s, a gang of young radicals are mobilised into political action in a right-wing Nationalist group that saw the violent ousting of Salvador Allende in 1973 and the rise of Augusto Pinochet’s nearly two-decade long military junta.

Jumping forward to present day, the surviving members have taken different paths, some obsessed with the perceived injustices of the past and others struggling to keep that past at bay.

Simmering tensions build to boiling point in Spider as its exceptional cast paint a riveting tale of intrigue that spans generations. Wood lays bare the psychological trauma that Chile’s violent history has had not just on individuals, but on the nation as a whole, in this explosive drama.
