Through an innovative, dreamlike lens, filmmaker Francisco Huichaqueo documents a performance art piece staged at a shopping centre in Santiago. An evocative soundscape is interwoven with documentary footage and poetic images to give voice to the Mapuche struggle for land and cultural rights, emblemized by the Mapuche family at the centre of the performance. Their improvisations - based on the concept of the Mapuche trawün, or gathering - in turn reflect a strong belief in the connection of the physical human form to the natural world.
