Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Fernandez Almendras is bringing “Much Ado About Nothing” to the World Cinema Dramatic Competition at the Sundance Film Festival this year, but the final product certainly is not what you would think from the title.

Known in Chile as “Aqui no ha pasado nada,” the Shakespearean title is getting a rather serious retooling as the director replaces marriage and trickery with Chilean political struggle. A follow up to Almendras’ “To Kill a Man,” which won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize in 2014, “Much Ado About Nothing” finds young, wealthy Vicente wrapped up in a fatal hit and run that changes his life. 

The film is premiering at Sundance and has yet to find a distributer. See the exclusive poster below.
