Main Program

Thursday till Sunday / Dominga Sotomayor

It all begins on a Thursday when two children go on a holiday trip with their parents to the north of Chile. It all ends on a Sunday. Lucía (10) and Manuel (7) travel for the long weekend with their parents, Ana and Fernando. The couple has decided to break up, but has previously promised their children to go to the north, so they decide to travel anyway. The journey slowly turns into a final goodbye. It’s a long route. The landscape’s desolation and the car’s confinement begin to reflect the couple’s problems. The children just want to get to the beach; Fernando, to a piece of land his father has left him; and Ana, to a nonexistent place where things are fine again. Thursday till Sunday is Lucía’s distant and fragmented outlook on this last family trip.
