Turistas - Tourists

Alicia Scherson – Chile – 2009

CHF 15.90 / EUR 14.80

The film follows the story of Carla (played by Aline Kuppenheim) who has recently had an abortion without previously notifying her husband. Left stranded on the side of the road by the devastated would-be father, Carla comes across Ulrik in a roadside restaurant. The pair quickly develops a friendship of convenience, based on a mutual sense of personal confusion and lack of structure and direction in their respective lives.

Filmed in Parque Nacional Radal Siete Tazas in Chile's VII region, the mostly outdoor setting of Turistas allows for a smooth development of the central theme, the idea of the supposed simplicity of nature versus the complexity of everyday life. The concept of romanticism in nature and the desperate search for answers in the wilderness is addressed through the two main characters' personal journeys in the park. The two discover that this idea of romanticism in nature doesn't necessarily provide the answers they hoped it would, however they do find a mysterious something, albeit something different than what they were originally looking for
