In 1973, after the coup in Chile, many people went into exile. Among them were Antonia Rossi's parents: they settled in Rome and Antonia was born there. When democracy was reestablished in 1989, most expatriates went back to Chile with their children, among whom some, like Antonia Rossi, had never seen the country.
Drawing from her personal experience, Antonia Rossi considers every thread one by one, in an introspective tale which questions the places, the images and their historical burden. She explores family and television archives, and confronts them with her own memories. – Nicolas Féodoroff, FID Marseille
