The third part of Guzman trilogy still works like an open book of history, but of a more reasonable history. Through his personal experiences -not just political but in the whole as an observer- tries to explain the brutal Chilean Juda of Pinochet and and how it's still hovering above his beloved country. The documentary is shaped in the hands of its creator to become a warning, a very poetic warning, that uses the tradition of the land and the people as the only true factor of nation's reconstruction. Hope this documentary and its true meaning reach big audiences and spark a flame in our minds and lifestyles cause we still give in the wrong social systems.
