How should one portray the tragic death of a sergeant and 44 drafted soldiers in the Chilean Andes during a march that concluded their training in 2005? Roberto Collío finds the right and fair resources: he shoots in black and white with a refined plastic work that includes animation and live action footage from different locations around the Antuco mountain area, he does an intelligent and sharp use of sound with evocative voices, and works on the 16mm film material that looks as if crossed by the dramatic nature of the case. As he approaches the subject knowing that reconstructing or reenacting that event is impossible, the young director not only transports us to another dimension establishing a reflection on irreparable loss, but he also builds up a present day from which we can think, imagine, and long for those men whose lives were swept away by a storm known as White Wind.
