Jaime Sepúlveda is a painter, born in Chile and exiled in France. As we see him in his everyday life, smoking, thinking, drawing, talking, remembering and reflecting, the film moves in two directions. On the one hand, there’s the painter, his art and the creation process – which we witness – and on the other hand, there’s Pinochet’s coup, the killings, the missing friends and colleagues, the forced exile. Both directions meet inevitably, since the artist’s personal history, which is Chile’s political history, is at the core of his work.
