"A shocking, brutal tale that blends the dark history of Chile’s recent past (the violent, repressive military dictatorship of Pinochet) with the seemingly modern and progressive Chile of today. The two worlds clash when a group of women venture to the idyllic countryside for a weekend of fun. But their outing soon turns nightmarish a man, himself a victim of torture in the hands of the government, unleashes his pent-up rage on them. The women must fight for their very lives in this film of shocking violence and sexual assault. Never gratuitous, director Rojas exposes the horrors of politics with the evil that can lie within the damaged soul of man."
The third feature from director Lucio A. Rojas, Trauma has screened at Horror Hound Film Festival, the Vancouver Badass Film Festival de Canada, Morbido Film Fest and the Optical Theatre Festival in Italy, where Rojas took home the award for Best Film. Rojas hits hard with Trauma, a cinematic depiction of the horrors committed by the Pinochet regime and the visceral cycle of abuse that followed its fall.
“Trauma is a raw movie – tough, violent, and dramatic. Although by some of its elements it could get close to the exploitation cinema, we went quite further. Some villains which are not from the present, but other times of Chile’s history. The content is extreme, visceral, strictly for people over 18. But it was the only way to tell a story of this sort.” – Director, Lucio A. Rojas
