    • Synopsis
    • After the cup d’état of 1973, several Chileans were exiled for political reasons. Some of them sought refuge in Rome, settling and raising their families in Italy. Many children were born in those families and they grew up as Italians.
      In 1989, as Chile regained Democracy, several families decided to return and they brought along these teenagers, who had never knew their parents’ homeland other than in pictures or stories.
      In a blurry line between documentary and fiction, The Echo of Songs explores these young people’s dreams and memories about exile and return, the wandering on their lives, and their perspective on today’s Chile.
