Pablo, a 12-year-old boy, receives a scholarship to attend school in the mysterious and isolated Colonia Dignidad, established in Chile by German settlers. He quickly becomes the favorite of the leader of the colony, Uncle Paul. Over time, Pablo witnesses the strangest things that happen there: abuse, disappearances and demon-like creatures used to scare children. But in this wicked world, a revolution is brewing, and it may be the only way for Pablo to get out.
Pablo, a 12-year-old Chilean boy, wins a scholarship to study and live in the mysterious Colonia Dignidad. He quickly becomes the favourite of the leader of the colony, Paul Schäfer, or ‘Uncle Paul’ to his boys and girls. While Pablo is desperate to earn the privileges of a ‘sprinter’, which include being able to watch TV every day, he begins to notice strange things happening within the camp.
A Place Called Dignity is an impeccably made period drama which plays out like a dark fairy tale. This period and institution remain taboo subjects in Chile. Director Matias Rojas Valencia’s film does a great job of highlighting the horrendous practices which took place while, at the same time, being an engaging and moving drama. There’s a sense of inevitability to A Place Called Dignity. One which casts a shadow over each moment.
