Perla

Sergio Castilla (Chile, 2015) 85’

Pearl, a mutt, is abandoned in the streets of Santiago by her owner. Samuel, a filmmaker, is suffering a severe case of writer’s block; the fact that his estranged daughter is back in town and his mother’s health is failing doesn’t help at all. Pearl and Samuel cross paths after Perla is run over by a car. Samuel’s reluctant adoption of the dog after she follows him home may be the best thing that has happened to him in a while, as he begins to “listen” to her stories.

Perla, una perra de raza mixta, es abandonada en las calles de Santiago por su dueño. Samuel, un director de cine, está sufriendo un severo caso de bloqueo mental; poco ayuda que su hija distanciada esté de vuelta en la ciudad y la salud de su madre se está deteriorando. Los caminos de Perla y Samuel se cruzan tras la perrita ser atropellada por un coche. Al principio Samuel se muestra reacio a adoptarla; pero pronto descubre que Perla es lo mejor que le ha pasado en mucho tiempo a medida que comienza a “escuchar” sus historias.
