It’s 1931. Emilia (Cumelen Sanz), a rebellious and defiant young woman, is sent by her father (Germán Baudino) to a convent. Her arrival unleashes paranormal manifestations there. These strange visions plague the residents, both the religiously devout and psychologically tormented. For Emilia, these strange occurrences become increasingly impossible to ignore.
This latest film from prolific Argentinan director Tamae Garateguy is a real delight for any fan of a juicy revenge story. A nunsploitation film in the best sense of the word, it Auxilio pulls no punches and makes great use of genre tropes to tell this incisively feminist tale of political and religious control.
