Adriana's Pact

Sat 9th Sep | 5pm

Every family has their secrets

Adriana Rivas was once Director Lissette Orozco’s hero and role model, but as she reflects on the role Adriana played during the Pinochet dictatorship and bravely forges toward the unsettling truth, family bonds are tested. This profoundly personal documentary places Chile’s devastating history alongside hard family truths.
