The Blind Christ

Chile

A man claiming he had a divine revelation as a child treks across the Chilean desert to perform a miracle on a friend badly injured in a remote town.

Why you should watch: El Cristo ciego is a rather rare film in that it uses indigenous Chilean actors playing, essentially, themselves. One review noted the movie can get bogged down in its own details but remains an interesting piece of art nonetheless.
