 Camaleón / Chamaleon

 Dir: Jorge Riquelme Serrano / DRAMA / LGBT / CHILE 2016
 Cast: Gastón Salgado, Paula Zuñiga, Paulina Urrutia, Alejandro Goic

«Precisely engineered chamber piece» – Variety – 

 Chamaleon is a drama with social issues at its core, from sexuality and gender to class and power structures. These universal themes are underpinned by a strong sense of Chilean identity that presents them authentically and sincerely, making them all the more accessible to a global audience. As the story begins to unravel we see subtle thriller tones expose the fractured nature of a seemingly normal situation.
