Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Writer/director Luis R. Vera draws extensively from his own experiences in the Chilean-Swedish Consuelo: An Illusion. Sebastian Dahm plays a Chilean youth who is forced out of his own country after the 1973 military takeover. He spends the next few years in Sweden, then returns to Chile when the political climate has cooled. Has anything changed? Not really, though the youth can always retreat into his dreams...and does.
