Written and directed by Carmen Aguirre.
Set in a run-down hotel in 1974, only months after the start of the torturous reign of Augusto Pinochet, eight Chilean refugees struggle, at times haplessly, at times profoundly, with the effects of fleeing their homeland. More than a dark comedy about a group of refugees who arrive in Vancouver after Pinochet's coup, The Refugee Hotel is an attempt to give voice to refugee communities from all corners of the globe. Carmen returns to her alma mater to direct.
