Director Statement

It inspires me making a film about the crimes that took place in Alto Hospicio, because various social, political and cultural elements of our Chilean identity were intertwined in a horrifying crime. A marginal Chile reveals the abuse of power exercised by different levels of government, the banality of institutions in its most incompetent and profane version.
