Is it possible to represent a concentration camp? Can a film be built on the foundations of the remains of horror? This documentary film is a conceptual and emotional essay which breaks with the hegemonic discourse. A new perspective of what has already been seen. 180 degree panoramic sequences, extra diegetic sounds which fill what is left of La Perla, a concentration camp built during the last Argentinian dictatorship. What is important is not seeking the truth, but allowing the place to trigger our emotions.
