Little White Dove

Little White Dove (Spanish: Palomita blanca) is a 1973 Chilean dramedy film directed by Raúl Ruiz. It is loosely based on the bestselling 1971 novel Palomita Blanca by Enrique Lafourcade. As a result of the 1973 Chilean coup d'état and military dictatorship (1973–1990), the film was presumed lost for many years and not released until 1992.[1]
