SYNOPSIS

What do two rivers as opposed and as far apart as the Ganges and the Biobío have in common? Beautiful natural landscapes and the inhabitants of two rivers located thousands of kilometers away from each other, converge in a visually captivating film.

Filmmaker Nicolás Molina and producer Marcela Santibáñez met the people living near the Ganges River on a trip in India in 2015. Fascinated by the natural resources and landscapes that surround the course of the river, they decided to start a film without a script or preconceived ideas. Little by little they discovered surprising similarities between the Ganges and the Biobío River, the one of the most important rivers and the second longest in their natal Chile.
