Two young migrant women die in obscure circumstances that involve repressive bodies of the state. We will follow the situations that led Joanne and Beatriz to make the decision to migrate, and how the country they reached became a boxing ring that cornered and threatened until killing them.

    • Synopsis
    • “Two less” explores the last year of life of Joanne Florvil and Beatriz Díaz Agüero, two women who migrated to Chile at different times and from different countries: Beatriz in 1973, from Argentina, and Joanne in 2016, from Haiti.
      Although their motivations and contexts were dissimilar, the points of coincidence –in their personal lives and in the outcome of their stories– prompt us to reflect on how little migration struggles, state policies and the actions of repressive bodies have changed in Chile in 40 years.
