A cinematic mosaic depicting Pope Francis’ 2018 visit to Chile, God explores the constant tension between the social creation of God in different communities and the tensions that define modern-day Chilean society.

Despite the Catholic church’s best efforts, the pews are increasingly empty, while in the streets, people are demonstrating their anger against institutionalized power, protesting for LGBTQ+ rights, the depenalization of abortion, and in support of the Mapuche people. Instead of a divine revelation, what comes to light is the profound social differences of a country.

God was directed by a collective of seventeen young Chilean filmmakers from the group MAFI - Mapa fílmico de un país (Filmic Map of a Country), led by Christopher Murray, Israel Pimentel, and Josefina Buschmann.
