Trivia The Colony

Colonia Dignidad was a chilean village founded by german exiles and inmigrants after WWII. During Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship this place turned into a prison and torture camp controlled by a cult. The village is currently named Villa Baviera. In 2014 Emma Watson visited Villa Baviera in what was at first thought to be a simple vacation trip by the press. Recently it has been revealed that she was paying a visit to the former Colonia Dignidad in order to research for her role. This is the second Emma Watson's film where she confronts a dangerous cult, after 'Regression' (2015).
