Ojos de Agua

A documentary by Marion Esnault and Marcelo Lara

 75 / 52 min I Spanish

In development



In Chile, drought and water shortages have been hitting hard for the last 10 years, due to climate change –but also to the privatization of water instituted under Pinochet’s dictatorship. After the 2019 popular demonstrations, a People's Assembly rose, with a mission to write a new Constitution. The documentary follows Alejo, a committed peasant farmer living at the foot of the Andes glaciers, and Ivanna, a former Constituent from the Diaguita community, in their daily struggle to fight for water as a common good.


Written & directed by Marion Esnault and Marcelo Lara

Production: Claire Babany and Eléonore Boissinot
