EL VIENTO SOPLA DONDE QUIERE

Chile / 90’ / HD

Amado (64) returns to Chome, in southern Chile, to oversee preparations for the construction of a wind farm on his family’s land. As it develops this work, it finds itself with this place and its inhabitants and through them emerges the past of an entire community, linked to a whaling industry that operated on the same site. During his stay, Amado will witness the end of his own time. But even though an era ends for him, a new era begins for others.
