Blossoming into his identity as a gay teen, Pablo (newcomer Andrew Bargsted) finds refuge from Santiago’s drab, dangerous streets in his brightly lit, rose-hued room, lip syncing to his favorite romantic ballads while clad in a sequined gown, hoping to one day make his mark as a drag performer, all while his father Juan (Sergio Hernandez, NO, Gloria) stews in his own workaday life as a supervisor at a mannequin factory, knowingly blind to his son’s burgeoning sense of self. When a brutal betrayal by a closeted neighbor Felix (Jaime Leiva) puts Pablo’s life in the balance, Juan must confront his failure to truly connect with his son while navigating a callous insurance industry, staggering medical bills, a duplicitous supervisor and an indifferent culture, leading to a devastating choice made to ensure Pablo’s ongoing care.

Based in part on the 2012 murder of gay Chilean Daniel Zamudio, this unforgettable debut feature from electropop musician Alex Anwandter is a powerful treatise on Chile’s generational divide, one side challenging machismo and pushing against convention to bring long overdue change; the other following a safe, prescribed route toward safety and security. Evocatively filmed by DP Matias Illanes, You’ll Never Be Alone is at once a pointed social critique, an engrossing tale of betrayal and redemption, and stirring testament to a father’s love.

Título: Nunca vas a estar solo

Basado parcialmente en el asesinato del gay chileno Daniel Zamudio en el 2012, este inolvidable film debut del músico electro pop Alex Anwandter es un convincente tratado sobre la brecha generacional en Chile: un bando cuestiona el machismo y desafía las convenciones sociales para lograr cambios que deberían haberse dado hace tiempo; el otro bando sigue la ruta prescripta hacia la seguridad y la estabilidad. Filmado evocativamente por DP Matías Illanes, Nunca vas a estar solo es a un mismo tiempo una aguda crítica social, una apasionante historia de traición y redención, y un elocuente testimonio del amor paterno.
