Adriana’s Pact (El pacto de Adriana)
Location: Bartos Screening Room
New York premiere
Special Jury Mention. Dir. Lissette Orozco. Chile, 2017, 96 mins. Spanish with English subtitles. Adriana was always director Lissette Orozco’s favorite aunt. A confident woman who had settled in Australia, one day in 2007 she is suddenly arrested while visiting her family in Chile and accused of having worked for dictator Pinochet’s notorious secret police, DINA. As the aunt denies these accusations, her niece sets out to investigate Adriana’s history, managing the tough balancing act of maintaining her role as both niece and filmmaker. “Raw and compelling… a brave documentary” (Jay Weissberg, Variety), Lissette Orozco’s extremely personal debut feature is a riveting personal journey that serves as a timely account of lies and self-deception, both within a family and a nation.
