Beyond the strait of Magellan, in a territory that is often imagined as untouched and remote, unfolds a story of cosmopolitical entanglement between two Chilean human rights activists, an American tycoon, a Nation State, a conservation biologist, a road under construction, a family of penguins, and the relentless wind. Of environmental proportions, this complex tale reveals a colonial culture of appropriation and extermination and the extraordinary civilians who fight for justice and kinship at the “road’s end”. In an allegorical style known as ethnofiction, La Distancia documents and stages fragments of the lives of the characters, some of which are more-than-human.
