Book Trailer of the “Album” produced for Editorial Juventud 

The young teacher was assigned to a school in the Amazon jungle, where she arrived loaded with her books, from which her students liked her to read them stories. Then they would take them home, and the mothers and grandmothers, although they did not know how to read, would look at those books with curiosity.

The inhabitants of the jungle villages used to tell many legends, but at that time the young teacher believed that they were just that: legends. Accustomed to the city and books, the young teacher will experience culture shock when she encounters a different reality. But she will soon realize that she is not the only one who has things to teach. This book is a tribute to Latin American teachers, who leave everything behind to pursue the dream of education, but also to the legends of the most remote villages, which their people have passed down through generations, thus preserving their cultural richness and popular wisdom.

BookTrailer of the book of poems El Patio by Raúl Valenzuela Rodriguez

Audiovisual poetic piece inspired by this book of poetry, which takes us to a place in which past and present are intertwined, portraying the image of children who are in the backyard, while Chile is in a dictatorship.

We travel along with the text to the places, the questions and the sensations that are installed – an open door to childhood from the point of view of someone who has grown up and still remembers all the traces and vestiges.
