Following a 5-year break after the huge success of the Harry Porter franchise, Emma Watson makes her return to the big screens in Colonia, an epic historical drama based on true events from Pinochet-era Chile. Emma teams up with Daniel Brühl and Michael Nyqvist on this one.
Produced by Benjamin Hermann’s Majestic Filmproduktion and directed by Oscar winning director, Florian Gallenberger, the movie follows Lena and Daniel, a young couple who become entangled in the September 11, 1973 Chilean military coup that deposed Salvador Allende and brought General Gustavo Pinochet to power. After being abducted by the Chilean secret police.
Lena tracks him to a sealed off area in the South of the country, called Colonia Dignidad. Presenting itself outwardly as a charitable mission run by lay preacher Paul Schäfer, the Colonia is in fact a place nobody ever escapes from, forcing Lena to join the cult in order to find Daniel.
Colonia opens in cinemas across Nigeria in April 2016.
