Synopsis


In 2021, northern Chile witnessed an unprecedented migration crisis that made history with the burning of tents and a child’s stroller during the anti-immigrant march in Iquique, whose images circulated worldwide. Through a choral narrative, protagonists and witnesses reveal the harsh migrant reality from Colchane’s border to Iquique and Alto Hospicio.
