The ocean contains the entire history of mankind. In the sea lie the voices of the Earth and of all space. Water, Chile’s longest boarder, also holds the secret of two mysterious buttons found on the seafloor. With a coastline stretching for over four thousand kilometres, including the world’s largest archipelago, Chile boasts a supernatural landscape pocked with volcanoes and crumpled with mountains and glaciers. This landscape harbors the voices of the indigenous peoples of Patagonia, of the first English seafarers that reached the region, and of the political prisoners sent to their watery graves by the Chilean dictatorship. Some say that water has memory. This film shows that it also has voice.
