Biography

Pablo Larraín was a director famous for making political and award-winning films set in his native Chile. Larraín was born to a highly political household in Santiago, Chile on August 19, 1976, though he later rejected his family's politics. His father was a senator, while his mother was a minister of housing and urbanism. Larraín and his mother were part of the Matte family, one of the richest and most influential families in Chile. Larraín attended the University for the Arts, Sciences, and Communication in Chile, where he studied audiovisual communication. His first feature film was "Fuga" (2006), and this and subsequent films earned him praise in his native country. He later moved into the TV realm, producing a TV series called "Profugos" (HBO Latin America 2011) about a drug cartel on the run. His fourth feature film was "No" (2012), a satirical comedy which chronicled the intersection of advertising and politics in 1980s Chile. The film made waves at the Cannes Film Festival, winning the Art Cinema Award, and eventually earning an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film. His next film, "Club" (2015) centered on the failings and cliquishness of the Catholic church, and it earned a similar amount of buzz at The Berlin Film Festival.
