following in Isabel’s footsteps. His route
takes him through different towns across
a desolate and unknown Chile, to the very

encountered. But as his adventure unfolds,
its initial intention fuses together with that
which comes up along the path. His journey

as they are real.

Students, show us another reality of
the student movement, the struggle for
the recovery of public education, and
the rejection of institutional policies.
This movement aimed to construct an
educational system for a different society,
so that social rights would cease to be a
commodity, and to end with the policies
inherited from Pinochet.

The Surire salt flat is located in the Chilean high
plateau at 4,300 meters over the sea level, on
the border with Bolivia. In its surroundings live a
handful of elders, the last survivors of the Aymara
culture in the area. As background, the machinery
of a mine site roams the landscape, intermingled
with flamingos, vicunas and llamas. SURIRE is a film
that from observation and visual language portrays
this unique space in which coexist natural beauty,
human absurdity, and cultural decline.
