Antares de la Luz: the series about the leader of the sect who burned a newborn alive in Chile as part of a ritual

A new Netflix documentary, titled “Antares de la Luz: la sect del fin del mundo”, is set to premiere on Thursday, April 25. The documentary delves into the chilling story of Ramón Gustavo Castillo Gaete, also known as Antares de la Luz, who led a sect where he claimed to be the reincarnation of God.

With a strong personality and unwavering loyalty from his followers, Antares de la Luz orchestrated a brutal crime in November 2012, where a newborn was burned alive on a bonfire under the belief that the baby was the “antichrist.”

After the shocking incident, Antares de la Luz fled to Peru and became the most wanted person in Chile. Months later, he was found dead in Cusco at the age of 35.

The documentary, directed by Santiago Correa and produced by the Chilean company Fábula, sheds light on the inner workings of the sect and includes exclusive interviews with former disciples, offering a deep dive into the mind of a manipulative leader and the horrific events that unfolded.

The case continues to mystify and shock Chileans more than a decade later, as they grapple with the question of how a charismatic figure like Antares de la Luz could lead his followers down a path of darkness and violence.

The documentary aims to provide a new and reflective perspective on the events that transpired, leaving viewers questioning the power dynamics and psychological manipulation that allowed such a tragedy to occur.
