The Other Oscar
The Other Oscar tells the story of a thirty-year-old Canadian musician who arrives in a Chilean coastal town to appear in a film about madness. That’s all Oscar knows about the film except that he’s been cast to play his cello on a raft in the Pacific, a terrifying prospect. Early on, he meets a gregarious actor who winds up befriending him and then the alluring Noemi whom he can’t forget. This labyrinth of a story follows Oscar’s misadventures as he parties with the film crew, experiences a harrowing day of filming and sets off on a search that takes him into a prison and alters the course of his self-discovery.
