Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies presents
FOURTH ANNUAL LATIN AMERICAN FILM FESTIVAL
SPIDER THIEVES (Chile)
Inspired by actual events, this teenage thriller is a unique social commentary on dreams, class, and unfulfilled expectations in contemporary Chile. Three teenage girls from a Santiago shanty town set in motion a plan to climb buildings and plunder expensive apartments. All they want is to have all the cool and trendy stuff they see advertised in TV commercials and department stores. Word spreads and soon enough they became the notorious “spider thieves.” Director Guillermo Helo will be on hand for a question and answer session.
This film will be shown in Spanish with English subtitles.
