Short Film Profile

La Conciencia de Golpe

On 11 September 1973, Juan Angel Torti films, from the roof of a factory, the flight of the aircraft it bombarded the presidential palace of Chile. Two days later, he went on to turn up the damage. 33 years later, he gives me his hidden treasure to give new life to his images.
A journey to actual Chile to meet ordinary people who lived near the places filmed by Torti. Through his stories I discover a new country in construction before I was born, a social conscience and unknown ideals to me and my generation.
