About the film:
REY was the winner of last year’s IFFR Special Jury Award for Artistic Achievement in the Tiger Competition. In 1860, French lawyer and adventurer Orélie-Antoine de Tounens has dreams of becoming King of Patagonia. He travels to a remote area in the south of Chile where he establishes his kingdom with the aid of the local Mapuche tribe, but then starts descending into madness.
