    • Synopsis
    • EL MOCITO Jorgelino is a farm worker in the south of Chile. For many years he worked as an agent of the repressive machinery of General Pinochet´s regime. Jorgelino was the « mocito » (junior houskeeper, a young butler) who brought the cups of coffee in the middle of torture sessions, the one who fed the prisioners and disposed of their bodies. Twenty years later he is being taken to court. Jorgelino is being forced to remember. El Mocito is a psycological portrait of a human being destroyed by his past. A man who participated in the horrors and crimes of the Pinochet dictatorship and that today takes conscience and looks for redemption.
