Drawn by the recent discovery of a deteriorated ethnographic film, a director searches for a way to reconstruct it missing parts. He repeats the 1925 expedition in the present.

Visual concept: 

With the intention of reconstructing the missing parts of a recently discovered film, a Chilean filmmaker investigates its documents and related materials: the original script, the travel diary of the camera operator and the journal of the captain of the ship. Given the 95 years that have passed since the creation of the film, the young director pursues the itinerary that the ethnographers followed during their voyage and films at the same places where they stopped all those years ago.
