The social integration project is headed by the director of the school, Father McEnroe. The film is dedicated to Father Gerardo Whelan, who from 1969 to 1973 was the director of Colegio Saint George (Saint George’s College), the private English-language school in Santiago that the film’s director attended as a boy.
