Biography

Fogata Films

We are an audiovisual production company with a documentary perspective. We construct narratives from reality with stories that mobilize and create identity. We are passionate about deciphering the human condition, cultural and natural heritage, and establishing bridges for sustainable development; in other words, we seek to film what is seemingly invisible.

Synopsis

After 45 years, a group of retired scientists and naturalists gather again around a campfire. Inspired by their stories, the director of this film embarks on a journey that will take him through the places they explored in the 70s in an attempt to understand his own identity and what kind of place Chile is.
