Year2012 Duration49 min. DirectorRubén García López WriterRubén García López EditorRubén García López

World premiere

In May 2011, several sectors of the Chilean society made their voices heard, giving rise to the largest social protest in the history of the country’s democracy. This film is set out to answer two questions: What is a demonstration like and how can you record it in film? And what is a demonstration like in Valparaíso, Chile, in 2011 and how can you record it in film?
