ABOUT THE FILM: 

In Spanish and French with English Subtitles. 

EL CONDE, nominated for the Academy Award for Best Cinematography, is a dark comedy/horror that imagines a parallel universe inspired by the recent history of Chile. The film portrays Augusto Pinochet, a symbol of world fascism, as a vampire who lives hidden in a ruined mansion in the cold southern tip of the continent. Feeding his appetite for evil to sustain his existence. After two hundred and fifty years of life, Pinochet has decided to stop drinking blood and abandon the privilege of eternal life. He can no longer bear that the world remembers him as a thief. Despite the disappointing and opportunistic nature of his family, he finds new inspiration to continue living a life of vital and counterrevolutionary passion through an unexpected relationship.

The American Cinematheque is thrilled to welcome Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Ed Lachman for a conversation following the screening.
