By reconstructing her past from memories, letters, childhood drawings and animation, Macarena Aguiló Marchi attempts to understand why her parents sent her abroad to be raised by strangers while they risked their lives back in Chile fighting the Pinochet regime. El edificio de los chilenos is a film about children who lost their parents under the relocation project Proyecto Hogares, as well as the parents who not only lost the Revolution, but any chance of ever seeing their children again. Winner of the Grand Prize at the FIDOCS festival in Santiago, Chile.
