With Josefina Ramírez, Gigi Reyes, Eduardo Moscovis

A hybrid fiction featuring the director’s intriguing grandmother as an anarchist warrior in a Chilean town ravaged by forest fires. Mischief, satire, and personal memoir mix with a weird little shiver of fear in this quasi-autobiographical piece by Camila José Donoso.


“A sly and subversive film.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“With a simple enough story to play with, José Donoso ends up with a film that’s really more of a loving, funny and yet brutally honest portrait.” – Marta Balaga, Cineuropa

“As much an allegory of contemporary Chile as it is a deeply personal character study.”Film at Lincoln Center

About the Director

Her second film, the documentary Casa Roshell (2017), was screened at several international film festivals. Nona. If They Soak Me, I’ll Burn Them premiered at IFFR 2019.
Notes on Film

Nona represents a woman who is rarely seen, a national femme fatale, who, with a tough life, shows that housewives are much more complex than they appear. I am interested in making cinema a popular art again, as it was in its beginnings. My grandparents always went to the movies and spent the whole day there.”

– Camila José Donoso, Director
