First Teaser Trailer for J.A. Bayona’s ‘Society of the Snow’ Survival Film
“What happened to us? What happens when the world deserts you?” Netflix has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Spanish director J.A. Bayona’s latest film titled Society of the Snow, returning to his Spanish-language roots for a thriller set in the mountains of Chile. It’s premiering as the final film at the 2023 Venice Film Festival next month. Based on a true story. In 1972, Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571, which had been flying a rugby team to Chile, crashed in the heart of the Andes mountains. Only 29 of the 45 passengers survived the accident. Trapped in one of the most hostile and inaccessible environments on the planet, they have to resort to extreme measures to stay alive. A story of endurance and perseverance in one of the world’s toughest environments to survive in. Always so crazy. The film’s complete ensemble cast includes Enzo Vogrincic, Agustín Pardella, Matías Recalt, Esteban Bigliardi, Rafael Federman, Fernando Contigiani García, Diego Vegezzi, Esteban Kukuriczka, Francisco Romero, Valentino Alonso, Tomás Wolf, Agustín Della Corte, Felipe Otaño, Andy Pruss, Blas Polidori, Felipe Ramusio, & Simón Hempe. With music composed by Michael Giacchino. This is looking like it might be really good.
