(15–17 Oct worldwide) The invasion of Western Europe has imposed a conception of linear time to the circular cosmos vision of the Indigenous people of Latino America. From the military regime of the Spanish Colony, to the establishing of the republics in the 19th century, the cultural and territorial resistance of the Mapuche nation symbolises to the Republic of Chile a tectonics of divergent levels confronting the neoliberalism of the 21st century. This documentary essay explores the earthquakes, the republic, the ancestors, the mining industry and the concept of time as symbols of the Chilean and Mapuche identities; as their parallel realities turn in opposite directions.
