    Raul Ruiz´s last film before leaving Chile. It had almost sealed under the influence of the Chilean coup d´etat and military dictatorship but was re-discovered after releasing in 1992.[#i_] Little White Dove [_i#]is based on the novel of the same name by Enrique Lafourcade, taking place in Chile before the era of Allende, and a love story of a rich boy and a poor girl like Romeo and Juliet. Maria of the laboring classes meets Juan Carlos of the upper classes in a music festival and falls in love. Their romance reminiscent of the myths of Cinderella saved by the wonderful prince falls into trouble due to class differences. Juan involved in the rightwing terror must leave Chile without Maria. Ruiz is interested in Lafurcade´s novel criticized as a right-wing novel, because he discovered the possibility of deconstructing it with a critical perspective. [JANG Byungwon]

In 1968, he releases his first completed feature, Three Sad Tigers, immediately winning the Golden Leopard in Locarno that year. Ruiz became one of the key Chilean directors of New Latin American Cinema.Influenced by the fabulist tradition that runs through much Latin American literature ,Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jorge Luis Borges, and Alfonso Reyes, Ruiz is a poet of fantastic images whose films slip effortlessly from reality to imagination and back again.
