The filmmakers in Chile marked in a special way the transition from dictatorship to democracy. Their works reflected and analyzed the social, cultural, political and economic landscapes of our times. An extraordinary example is director Gonzalo Justiniano - with the characteristic aesthetic of his images. Justiniano's new film, Cabros de Mierda (2018), was shown at the Kino Babylon cinema, in Berlin, as part of the Lakino film festival.

The Hundred Cycle of Chile was inaugurated with B - Happy, a story about adolescence depression and the first love within a vulnerable social environment.
