Synopsis: Mario Cornejo is going about his daily business of writing autopsy reports at the military hospital in Santiago, when the Pinochet coup d´état shakes this heretofore apolitical character out of his state of apathy. This passionately executed film by Larraín has met with brilliant reviews, competing at the Venice Film Festival and nabbing second place at the Havana Film Festival’s Coral Awards. Post Mortem is neither a reconstruction of the Pinochet days, nor an angry denunciation of the period. Instead, Larraín offers a borderline-surreal –Lynchian–black comedy to show, among other things, how easy it is for ordinary people to sleepwalk into a climate of atrocity, either as victims, collaborators, or as both.

Spanish with English subtitles, 98 min.
