El Bosque de Karadima - Film Screening

Fernando Karadima, the pastor and leader of the most powerful Church of the Chilean upper class from the 1980s to 2000s, is considered a living saint. Thomas, a teenager in search of his vocation, finds himself drawn to Karadima and accepts him as a spiritual guide. For 20 years, Tommy will gradually be subjected to physical and psychological abuse by the priest, until he decides to speak out and confront both the charismatic priest and the power networks that protect him, finally uncovering the real Karadima hiding behind the investiture of God's representative on Earth.

97 minutes. Directed by Matias Lira. The film is in Spanish, with English subtitles.
