Visually striking documentary essay exploring the concept of time as a symbol of the Chilean and Mapuche identities, discussing notions of nationhood, post-colonialism, indigeneity, tectonics, time and the afterlife.

Synopsis

The invasion of Western Europe imposed a conception of linear time to the circular cosmovision of the indigenous people of Latinoamérica. Since the military regime of the Spanish Colony to the establishing of the republics in the 19th century, the cultural and territorial resistance of the Mapuche nation to the Republic of Chile symbolises a tectonics of divergent plaques confronting the neoliberalism of the 21st century.

The film explores the earthquakes, the republic, the ancestors, the mining industry and the concept of time as symbols of the Chilean and Mapuche identities; as their parallel realities turn in opposite directions.
