Synopsis:
Two films from the Chilean director, Pablo Larraín.

Tony Manero (2008)
Santiago de Chile, 1978. As Pinochet's oppressive dictatorship continues to stamp down hard on civil liberties, Raul Peralta (Alfredo Castro) escapes the tedium of everyday life by leading a small group of dancers and obsessing about Tony Manero, John Travolta's character in 'Saturday Night Fever'. He lives for Saturday nights, when he unleashes his passion for the film's music by imitating his idol. His dream of becoming a successful showbiz star takes a step closer to reality when the national television station announces a Tony Manero impersonation contest. But it's a rocky road to fulfilling his dreams. Prepared to go to any lengths to win, the sociopathic Raul's urge to become Tony Manero drives him to commit a series of crimes while his dancing partners - who are involved in clandestine activities against Pinochet's regime - continue to be persecuted by the government's secret police...
Post Mortem (2010)
Following the remarkable and critically-acclaimed 'Tony Manero', multiple award-winning director Pablo Larrain returns to the 'sealed box' of Chile during one of its darkest periods - 1973's military coup. Against this terrifying and murderous backdrop 'Post Mortem' tells the story of an apparently insignificant and charmless couple whose poignant relationship is played out amid the death and destruction that results from military ideals imposed with no care for their cost or consequences. Employing a still, dream-like cinematography, Larrain weaves a complex and poetic tale from this terrifyingly tragic situation which affected an entire country and still resonates to this day.
