In this experimental short, the viewer is invited to role-play through the repeated employment and alteration of the text, sound and image until his or her expectations have been truthfully realized. The video examines class structure, the meaning of beauty and forgotten history through two very different but significant women during Pinochet’s brutal regime of Chile in the late 1980’s.

Technical note: please set your computer volume at a normal listening level. The beginning of the film should be heard as a faint whisper as the sound level does increase throughout the film's progression. Thank you, E.M.
