The Blind Christ or El Cristo Ciego (Christopher Murray, 2016, Chilean) with  Pedro Godoy, Ana María Henríquez, Bastián Insotroza, and local extras.

The character (and indeed the mood) often reminded me of the silent, watching Christ figure in Kieslowski's Dekalog.Fairly sure my film theology prof Adelmo Dunghe would put this on his list of transcendent films! Poetic and at times painful to watch, both visually and emotionally. Loved it.
