Film Profile – Gloria

| SHIFF Home | Film Programme | Tickets | Sponsors & Beneficiaries | Venue |

Gloria is a 58 year old divorcee. Her grown up children have all left home and she is determined to defy old age and loneliness by throwing herself headlong into the dance clubs and singles parties of Santiago.

A multi – award winning film that gives a portrait of a feisty woman who manages to assert her own strength and independence in spite of a maelstrom of conflicting feelings.

“…operates both as a compelling character study of an alluring humane protagonist whose fragility and resourcefulness sit side by side, and as a wider contemplation of the state of the nation..” Sight and Sound.
