Caluga o menta (El Niki)

Directed by Gonzalo Justiniano
Chile, 1990
Drama, Crime


Niki and his friends are members of the marginalised underclass living on the outskirts of Santiago. During Chile’s transition from dictatorship to democracy (1988-1990), they forge a path from drug- and drink-fuelled nihilism and petty crime into the world of market-driven illegality.
