Story of my name

21:00 HS / Sala B


After a fire destructed my house, I return to the places where I grew up looking for childhood recollections. In this journey appears the memory of a photo for Karin Eitel, a young woman, tortured and detained during the dictatorship, to whom I owe my name. A story that my parents never told me, brings me closer to Karin. In the background, the memory of a childhood in Chile, a country that reconstructed its democracy omitting its own history.
