THE PAINTING LESSON

  • Drama
  • | 2011

Directed by Pablo Perelman

In Chile, during the 60’s, the son of a poor single teenage girl turns out to be a gifted painter.

The man to discover his talent is the owner of the drugstore that lies in the outskirts of the small rural town, next to the railroad. He himself is an amateur painter who will try to make the boy into a great artist, like all the ones in his art books.

From the pharmacists point of view in his old age, unfolds the story of this young boy who could have become a great art genius, had he not disappeared at the age of 13, along with all his works, on September 11th 1973, the day of the coupe d’état.
