Inspired by the vibrant political and social climate of 1970s Chile, Jaime Barrios' films offer a glimpse into the underground scene that emerged during the height of the Pinochet regime. These films have become emblematic of the resilience and creativity of Chilean artists, who used their art to both resist and document the turbulent times they were living in.
