Otro Sol is a group of real and invented characters trapped in a film. It is also a purgatory of retired thieves that takes place on the coast of the Atacama Desert. The film is circular and seeks to invent and verify the myth of Alberto Cándia, a Chilean international thief who stole the Cathedral of Cadiz in Andalucia in the late 1980s.
Through interviews with his family, his former robbery partners and invented characters, little by little the testimonies and documents rewrite the real and summon a possible fiction.
Francisco Rodríguez Teare is a Chilean artist and filmmaker based in France with a moving image practice. Since 2015 he has been creating film and video works and exhibiting them internationally both in film festival circuits and contemporary art contexts. His work explores the flow of power within fluid global networks and territories, opacity of violence, the traces of the dead in the world of the living, oral traditions and their intersection with personal memory and popular myths.
