Rotting in the Sun

There is no biding his time for this Chilean filmmaker and there is no remaining in one spot either. Depending on where you think the Sebastián Silva is geographically – we assume he moved south of the border and into Mexico for what would appear to be micro-budget bliss. After lining up Sundance coffers with pretty much his entire filmography (2018’s Tyrel is among the highly underrated features of the previous decade), Silva created a Podcast series, a practically unseen Telluride selected Fistful of Dirt, a TV Series Los Espookys and committed to some funky art as well but late last year commenced filming on Rotting in the Sun – which is likely produced by Jake Wasserman and was shot by TV Director and cinematographer Gabriel Díaz. Silva might appear in front of the camera – but that’s all we have to go one for the time being. His idiosyncratic style and voice (we still can’t shake 2015’s Nasty Baby from our head) guarantees a fest premiere for his eighth feature film.

Gist: Unknown.

Release Date/Prediction: Filming was just completed in December so we could see this hit Locarno, Telluride, Venice and/or the San Sebastian Film Festival.
