Summary
This remarkable film tells a story never before documented: While their parents battled the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile, a group of children were raised, first in Europe and then in Cuba, safely and communally. The 20 adults who supervised Project Home saw over sixty children through to adulthood, children whose mothers and fathers-members of the leftist organization Movimiento de Izquierda Revolucionaria (MIR)-fought for the freedom of their homeland, many never to be seen again. For the men and women in The Chilean Building, patriotic duty took another form-child-care rather than warfare; these adoptive, communal parents assumed responsibility for their charges for years to come. In this remarkable documentary, director Macarena Aguilo, herself a product of Project Home, provides an intimate, behind-the-scenes examination of a grand and surprising social and political experiment.
