Nothing makes us so lonely as our secrets.

After his gay teenage son, Pablo, is badly beaten up by some homophobic youngsters, Juan, a withdrawn manager at a mannequin factory struggles between having to pay his son's exorbitant medical bills and his last attempt at making partner at his company. As he runs into dead-ends and unexpected betrayals, he'll discover that the world can be violent with him too. Juan has made too many mistakes, but his son can still be saved.

One of the examples of contemporary Chilean cinema, “Nunca Vas a Estar Solo”, while providing a harsh critique of society, also touches upon impunity, one of the biggest problems in our country as well. The violent targeting of groups marginalized by the society through impunity and the feeling of despair capture the audience, calling them to a challenging confrontation.

1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.

Tadeusz Ajdukiewicz discovered the Orient in 1877, touring Syria, Egypt, Turkey, and the Crimea with Władysław Branicki. This experience made a profound impression on him, and he was to continuously revisit Eastern themes in his works for the rest of his life.

Knowledge of plants and the practice of healing are closely entwined. The toxic or hallucinogenic nature of some roots, and the dangers associated with picking them, conferred a mythical or magical character and power.
