La Contadora de Películas

A moving tribute to cinema and the magical power of storytelling, the star-studded new film from multi award-winning director Lone Scherfig (An Education, One Day) follows a young woman’s coming-of-age in the rugged heart of Chile’s Atacama Desert in 1966.

Medardo (Antonio de La Torre, Marshland) and María (Academy Award-nominee Bérénice Bejo, The Artist) lead a simple life with their children, finding joy in the weekly visits to the cinema. However when their routine is disrupted and Medardo can’t go, he asks his daughter to describe it and what begins as a duty soon becomes a gift, as her talent for recounting the films blossoms. With each retelling, she breathes life into the magic of film, attracting and captivating the townsfolk with tales of drama, humour, and romance. As her storytelling prowess grows, so does the town's love for the cinema.

An adaptation of the award-winning autobiographical novel by Hernán Rivera Letelier, Scherfig’s beguiling film celebrates imagination and the need to find love, community, and hope.

“For movie lovers everywhere, The Movie Teller is a must-see.” - Deadline
