Generation Exile

Rodrigo Dorfman. (USA/Chile, 2009) 71 min.    


When Rodrigo Dorfman was 6 years old, he was forced into exile because of the revolutionary activities of his father, Chilean writer Ariel Dorfman. Now, 35 years later, Rodrigo Dorfman weaves his experience of exile through the eyes of 4 women: a Taiwanese pianist haunted by nightmares of her past; an Afro Caribbean Whirling Dervish on a pilgrimage to Turkey; a Latina artist mourning the destruction of her community and a young American woman caught in a web of spiritual abuse. Spanning 4 continents and 100 years of personal history, GENERATION EXILE is a meditation on our search for identity in a world full of pain and wonder. English.


With introduction by Director Rodrigo Dorfman
