The film tells the fictional story of the last months of photographer Rodrigo Rojas de Negri’s life, who along with Carmen Gloria Quintana was burned alive by members of the military dictatorship during a protest against Augusto Pinochet.
‘The news in 1986, with the ferocity of setting fire alive to two young men of 18 and 19 years old, was something that kept forever in my memory and in the collective memory,’ Gaviola said to specialized media.
The feature film will be released on websites and its cast includes Juan Carlos Maldonado, Catalina Saavedra, Gonzalo Robles and Maria Izquierdo.
The work, which was based on research into the historic context and interviews with family members and acquaintances of the young photographer, points out with full force this brutal incident such as the violation of human rights in Chile.
According to the filmmaker, she expects her work to be well received, and told the national media that making films about our history is very important.
