Shot in Chile, The Club is a powerful drama that follows four priests who live together in a secluded house in a small, seaside town. Aiming to absolve themselves of past sins, they live according to a strict regime under the watchful eye of a female caretaker. When the fragile stability of their routine is disrupted by the arrival of a fifth man, a newly-disgraced companion brings with him the past they thought they had left behind.
Winner of the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival 2015, The Club is director’s Pablo Larraín fifth feature-length film. Previous films from the renowned director include Fuga, Tony Manero, Post Mortem and NO, which premiered at the Directors’ Fortnight of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
