Pilar Quinteros: Patagonian Orchids: Letter to Chile

Having found herself in Coyhaique, Chile at the onset of the pandemic, artist Pilar Quinteros decided to stay put. This is the first in a series of five short films she is making there that reflect on the coexistence of native plants and animals with foreign species introduced for commercial purposes. For Quinteros, this inherent conflict resonates with tensions expressed in the massive global protests spurred by abusive public policies.
