“Colonia” Trailer

Director: Florian Gallenberger

Starring: Emma Watson, Daniel Br├╝hl, Micheal Nyqvist

Synopsis: Based on true events during the Chilean military coup of 1973, Lena searches for her missing husband Daniel who has been sent to a restricted area controlled by Colonia Dignidad, a cult-like sect from where no one has escaped from.

Notes: Movies about cults have been taking off in the past few years, and for good reason. The ideology and drama behind manipulation and depravity offer a whole lot to be explored. Place this cult during national turmoil, throw in a love story for stakes, a pinch of period art direction, and we have an edge to all those others.
