"I think that we never understand how it can be possible to survive the loss of a great love, how to carry on in its absence," Castillo confessed. "However, my memory of what happened has gone from horror and evil to good. For a long time, I considered Chile to be full of nothing but fascists. Even though I knew that there was still humanity to be found among the prisoners in the torture chambers and in the camps, I maintained this perception of evil and fear. (...) When I returned to Calle Santa Fe, it was like coming back to a place where a life had been broken. But I finally understood this way of being, of fighting, of a people who'd never been considered, whose opinion regarding the dictatorship had always been ignored. (...) From a film centered around a personal story, I move to a choral film, one that echoes the voices of a generation of revolutionaries."
