Chilean filmmaker Lorena Manriquez embarks on a journey to search for the truth behind a 30-year rift between her father and her uncle Ulises. The two brothers were on opposite sides in the 1973 military coup that brought General Pinochet to power in Chile and Ulises to exile in Switzerland. Through the revelation of family secrets, Manriquez exposes the recent history of Chile, her country&́#x80;™s painful memory, and the desire to reconcile it.. &́#x80;œUlises&́#x80;™ Odyssey is a film made with sensitivity, patience, and honesty. Every family lived its own coup d&́#x80;™etat. Therefore, every movie made about this subject is not a repetition. These films are an extraordinary collection of our memory." - Patricio Guzman, Filmmaker Battle of Chile, The Pinochet Case, Nostalgia for the Light. Winner 2015 Latin American Studies Association (LASA) Merit in Film Award.
