Lucciole per lanterne

Like Fireflies

After Pinochet privatized nearly all of Chile's water resources in 1981, the country's water rights have been granted to private companies interested in hydroelectric power production. Now, however, the HidroAysén project will involve the construction of five dams along the Pascua and Baker rivers in Patagonia. Interweaving the story of three women living hundreds of kilometers apart yet facing the same emergency, the film describes the consequences a model of development can have on a population living at geographical and social extremes.<%YOUTUBE=r-PPy2StH3o%>
