Synopsis

When a strange doctor insinuates himself into the lives of a young girl and her Argentine family, they unwittingly begin a relationship with exiled Nazi ‘Angel of Death’ Joseph Mengele. As the doctor-patient bond intensifies, his obsessive quest for genetic purity is reawakened. Acclaimed writer-director Lucia Puenzo (XXY) studiously crafts this taut thriller based on real-life accounts of a deadly community surviving in secret, and the everyday proximity of evil. ‘Achingly tense… chilling’ Variety

Wakolda is presented in partnership with the London Argentine Film Festival.
