La Historia de Samuel

This film is an evocative and shocking story of one man, Samuel Houston, who had been a political prisoner during the military dictatorship in Chile. The protagonist’s account of the events will leave no-one indifferent; it reveals a terrifying and cruel world of a bloody regime that shows no mercy to divergent individuals. The work is universal and constitutes a clear warning against dictatorships and totalitarianism of any kind. Oliver Hardcastle made his film in an intriguing animated style.
