Film description

Set in Chile in the summer of 1990, Too Late to Die Young is a beguiling coming-of-age drama, partly inspired by the director’s own experiences growing up in the alternative ecological community of Peñalolén.  

As the country comes to terms with the end of Pinochet’s dictatorship, a group of adolescents living on a rural commune attempt to make sense of their own burgeoning desires and tangled relationships. Sixteen-year old Sofia, the daughter of a famous singer, who is largely absent from her life, becomes intoxicated with the motorbike-riding Ignacio—much to the dismay of her friend, Lucas. Meanwhile, ten-year old Clara is more concerned with the whereabouts of her beloved dog.  

Featuring a standout performance from newcomer, Demian Hernández, and beautifully shot by Inti Briones – who’s cinematography perfectly captures the sun-scorched hues of an endless teenage summer – this is a subtly observed tale brimming with hope and trepidation.
