On October 5th, 1974, at a house on Santa Fe Street , Carmen Castillo is wounded by the secret police. Her companion and comrade, Miguel Enríquez, leader of the resistance against Pinochet’s dictatorship, dies in combat. “Calle Santa Fe” is the story of this woman, as she embarks on a raw, uncompromising journey into the present, without nostalgia or self-indulgence—a journey into the memory of those who were defeated. Were those heroic acts of resistance really worth it? Did Miguel die in vain? One reunion after another—with her family, the house on Santa Fe street, her former neighbors, her comrades, this woman retraces the path from resistance to exile, from the luminous days of Allende to the long, somber years under Pinochet and the men and women who rose up against his tyranny. As the emotions of those chaotic years are revealed, the story of a generation of revolutionaries and a country torn apart slowly emerges. The search for meaning in those lives shall lead us to the very underground of this amnesiac country, where the dead nevertheless refuse to die.
