ESSAY On the trail of a disused stretch of railway, a hypnotic documentary full of lyricism.
In 1910, the railway line between Buenos Aires and Valparaiso was put into operation. With just one ticket, passengers could travel not only from Argentina to Chile, but also commute between two oceans. In 1979, the last train clattered along the tracks, which have been disintegrating ever since, along with the memories. Director Mariano Donoso begins an associative search for traces. He interweaves the story of the railway with the history of Argentina, personal memories and the magic of cinema to form a beautifully lyrical kaleidoscope.
