SCREENING IN THE PRESENCE OF THE DIRECTOR

Lucciole per lanterne (Fireflies) tells the stories of three women whose lives were either seriously affected by the privatization of the Chilean water reserves more than thirty years ago or will be devastated by the hydroelectric power plants that Energy companies are building on Pascua and Baker rivers. Although they are hundreds of miles apart from each other, these women try to resist the corporate giant that is about to crush them and destroy their land by brutally imposing a conception of progress that they do not share.
