A gay urban ghost story.
Pablo’s life is in flux, he’s struggling to land the acting roles he wants so badly and has to take on a variety of eccentric odd jobs to make ends meet. It doesn't help that the ex he is still in love with, is a successful YouTube star and has no romantic interest in him whatsoever. Throw in a roommate who has vanished without paying the rent, leaving behind only a ghost, and you have a quirky gay indie film like no other. Pablo’s journey of self, alongside his eclectic new and old friends is a pure joy to watch.
Director Roberto Doveris shot the film in his own neighborhood, Santiago’s vibrant Ñuñoa district and the story reflects many of his personal experiences. Such authenticity radiates from the screen and Juan Cano who plays Pablo so well, feels like an old friend by the time the credits appear. A hit at film festivals around the world this year, from Rotterdam to Edinburgh, this Gay Urban Ghost Story (as one critic named it), is a gem in this year’s festival program.
