REVIEW

This film is about the story of Alberto Camilo Cándia, a world-class Chelian thief suspected of stealing ancient artifacts from The Cadiz Cathedral in Spain. The information about the thief is collected from diverse people, such as gold diggers, vagrants, coworkers, and families of Candia, and the film tracks his truth based on the gathered information. However, their stories are as complicated as a labyrinth where you cannot tell the difference between reality and fiction or truth and false, and the audiences immerse deeper into their stories. Although stories are connected and expand further, they only take the audiences to a deeper labyrinth instead of clarifying the truth. This film’s goal is not to find pieces of evidence, reveal the truth, and catch the criminal. Instead, the film creates a world that looks similar to the world of oral traditions. In the oral traditions, myth, history, past, and present are connected to each other regardless of their positions. The interest and point of view on what happened, lessons from happening, criticism, etc., gradually expand to bigger stories or split. This leads to a world that reflects people’s desires and dreams. This film version of the orally transmitted story is also the legend of a colony and action film that presents stories of lost dreams and ruined land.

SYNOPSIS

Otro Sol is a group of real and invented characters trapped in a film. It is also a purgatory of retired thieves that takes place on the coast of the Atacama Desert. The film is circular and seeks to invent and verify the myth of Alberto Cándia, a Chilean international thief who stole the Cathedral of Cadiz in Andalucia. Through interviews with his family, his former robbery partners and invented characters, little by little the testimonies and documents rewrite the real and summon a fiction.
