Genres  Fiction
Country  Chile
Director  Raúl Ruiz


Ruiz's first film in French lands is a kind of fiction and documentary at the same time. The film tells the story of some Chilean exiles in Paris in the early years of the Pinochet regime and their adventures trying to get roof, money and work. The actors, French and Chilean, worked for free for reasons of solidarity. Most of the Chileans were refugees, colleagues and friends of Ruiz, therefore they were interpreting their own situation.
