From acclaimed Spanish director Julio Medem comes a thriller that negotiates the personal, the political and the mystical. Ana leads a sheltered existence with her father on Ibiza until a mysterious philanthropist (Charlotte Rampling) stumbles on Ana’s artwork and invites her to Madrid to develop as a painter. There Ana meets Said, a Berber refugee, and suddenly their passionate relationship leads to the discovery of other past lives that Ana appears to have had. As these are peeled away Ana begins to question who she is and her journey takes her across eras and continents on a voyage that goes far beyond self-discovery. Grounded in an extraordinary performance by newcomer Vellés, Chaotic Ana is a tale of remembrance, trauma and identity that negotiates the very boundaries of that which can be known and that which will always defy human control.
