20:00 / Sala Zavala Muniz, Teatro Solís


Augusto and Paulina have been together and in love for 25 years. Eight years ago, Augusto’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis changed their lives. As one of Chile’s most prominent cultural commentators and television presenters, Augusto is no stranger to building an archive of memory. He now turns that work into his own life, trying to cling to his identity with the help of his beloved Paulina, whose own pre-eminence as a famous Chilean actress and Minister of Culture predates her relentless inventiveness to engage with her husband Day by day, the couple faces this challenge, relying on the tender affection and sense of humor they share that surprisingly remains intact.
