(DEATH IN SANTA MARIA DE IQUIQUE).
Based on an historical event, the tape
recalls the tragic end of the people of Santa Maria de Iquique,
a copper-mining village in Northern Chile. The government,
afraid a recent strike in the village would create
a movement in other villages, sent the army
in with orders to shoot and kill all the people.
Using images from the past and a journey
through the present-day ghost town,
the tragic event is recreated.
