Retrospective Review: Thursday Till Sunday

“Thursday Till Sunday” (De jueves a domingo) (2012) by Chilean director Dominga Sotomayor Castillo plays with perspective and camera work to create an immersive yet sensitive coming of age drama. "Thursday Till Sunday" won the Tiger Award at Rotterdam Film Festival, and the award for best cinematography at Toronto International Film Festival. 10-year old Lucia (Santi Ahumada) and her family embark on a four day holiday with both Lucia and her younger brother Manuel (Emiliano Freifel) riding in the back seat of the car. Across the four days a happy family break slowly turns into a childhood-defining realisation that her parents may be splitting up.
