One woman’s efforts to rescue her lover from a brutal sect take her on a journey into the heart of darkness in Florian Gallenberger’s nerve-jangling thriller, The Colony (previously called Colonia). Based on harrowing true events, the film is in cinemas from 1st July 2016.

Set amidst the Chilean coup of 1973, Colonia begins by depicting the masses who are out on the street, protesting against General Pinochet. Amongst them are Daniel (Daniel Brühl– Rush, Captain America: Civil War) and Lena (Emma Watson – Harry Potter, The Bling Ring), a young couple who, like many others, get arrested by Pinochet’s secret police for producing propaganda against the regime. Following his arrest, Daniel finds himself trapped in a secret interrogation camp located beneath the infamous Colonia Dignidad; a German sect under the leadership of the notorious, charismatic and unflinching Paul Schäfer (Michael Nyqvist – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, John Wick). Presenting itself as a charitable mission, the Colonia is in fact a place of brutality and terror that nobody has ever escaped from. Desperate to rescue her boyfriend, Lena infiltrates the cult and witnesses the true darkness of Schäfer’s regime before she attempts a dramatic escape that puts both their lives on the line.

Also starring Julian Ovenden (Downton Abbey, Person Of interest), Colonia places a microscope over one of history’s lesser known atrocities and also gives fans the chance to see an incendiary Watson as she’s never been seen before. Filmed with input from real-life survivors of the Colonia Dignidad, Florian Gallenberger’s thriller is a sobering, taut must-see this summer.
