In 1860, French lawyer and adventurer Orélie-Antoine de Tounens dreams of becoming the King of Patagonia. He finds a discreet spot in southern Chile and founds his kingdom with the assistance of the local Mapuche natives.

A visionary psychedelic film from artist Niles Atallah, Rey probes Chilean history, memory and colonialism through its stylised blend of deliberately decayed footage, stop-motion, masks, puppets and other kaleidoscopic imagery.

Based on accounts of a true story, and drawing on location and archival footage of Patagonia, Rey is a winner of Special Jury Award for Artistic Achievement at the 2017 International Film Festival Rotterdam.
