At the beginning of the 80s, two musicians from Santiago were experimenting with strange recordings, including those of a blender. In 1984 they met an ex-air-traffic controller with similar interests, and formed one of the most experimental rock bands in Chile. Electrodomésticos: El frío misterio reveals the story of a movement and artistic protest as carried out by this influential band. Winner of the jury award for Best Film at the Festival Internacional de Cine y Documental Musical INEDIT-NESCAFÉ.
