Lizard's Tales
Historia de lagarto
Set in the sparse Chilean countryside, this film is divided into three stories. Each story forms an extended metaphor for the impact of Chile's recent history on the individual psyches of its people, detailing a pathology of desolation felt by the people who stayed. Each is the story of men fleeing demons, wandering in the wilderness, seeking unattainable redemption.

Reviews
"Mr. Bustamante creates an ominous and paranoid state, as effective as a barrage of photographs of soldiers in the streets." - Caryn James, NEW YORK TIMES
