The Eternity of Tomorrow

Production

Cristóbal Olivares/Magnum Foundation

For almost a century, the Mapuche—the largest indigenous group in Chile—have claimed their right to recover their ancestral lands, which have been severely impacted by state business and continuing deforestation. In response to the Mapuche’s reclamation attempts, the Chilean government criminalized collective action, and have militarized these ancestral territories, resulting in increasingly violent clashes. The Eternity of Tomorrow illustrates the acute violence against the Mapuche, and its serious and specific consequences on children and teenagers.
