Ricardo Carrasco's 2014 feature "Vacaciones en Familia" (Family Vacation) also tells a story of the Chilean condition, albeit in a different cinematic language.The opening shot sets the film in an affluent neighborhood of contemporary Santiago, where the Kelly family is starting its summer.The home around them is throbbing from the Deep House blasting from teenage Mimi's stereo.Everybody's at home because the summer vacation season has begun. This opens a new front in the low-intensity war between Mimi's mum, Sofia (Maria Izquierdo), and her nosy neighbor.Most escape Santiago's summer heat for a Chilean beach, while the well-to-do cross the border into Brazil.After expressing insincere sympathy with the neighbor lady because she had to sack her cleaning lady and can't afford a vacation, Sofia boasts that her own tribe will spend the month on a Brazilian beach.Though the cycle usually selects movies with some festival exposure, most of the films in its seventh edition have had brief lives on the festival circuit.Anyone who didn't see it when it screened during Otras Miradas a couple of years ago could find worse ways to spend an evening.
