CHICAGO LATINO REEL FILM CLUB presents:
One night only!
Silver Palm Award Mexico Intl Film Fest
Sergio is a filmmaker/screenwriter who loves Westerns, and wants to shoot one in the arid desert of Atacama in northern Chile. He cannot quite get an authentic feel for his latest script without actually scouting the locations where it is set. After being turned down by several producers, Sergio decides to travel to a desert town in search of inspiration. However, things take a surreal turn when he is mistaken for Diego, the village's long lost hero gunslinger. Now, Sergio is up against Diego's old nemesis Victor, the local crime boss who is out to settle an old score.
Expertly directed by Diego Rougier and beautifully shot, Salt is an old school Western set in modern South America. Complete with dirty villains, gunplay, horses, and a damsel-in-distress, the film works as an homage to the classics of westerns' golden age. It is now up to Sergio and his new mentor Viejo Vizcacha, who has a score to settle of his own, to take Victor down. But how does a down-and-out screenwriter become a gun-slinging hero and save the town and his script?
Directed by Diego Rougier, Chile/Argentina, 2011, 115 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles.
