Muerte Blanca
Animation | 16mm | black and white | 17'20'' | Chile | 2014
White death is the impressionist portrait of a landscape marked by tragedy. A ghostly stroll among the vestiges of a story where forty-four young soldiers and one sergeant were pushed to their deaths in the mountainous region of Antuco.
