Santiago is Dead


Inspired by “Chronicle of a death foretold”, by Gabriel García Márquez, “Santiago Morto” (Santiago is dead) tells the story of the murder of Santiago Nasar, a foretold tragedy which takes place within a people facing the chance. The last day in the life of the leading character is told as if in an intriguing puzzle, whose pieces fall into place through the versions of the witnesses that were close to him and did nothing, even though they knew about the premeditated murder. “Santiago Morto” (Santiago is dead) is not only the story of the death of an individual, but the changes a village go through in face of fatality. It is, above all, a discussion about the responsibility that lies over the surroundings and how actions might be ruled (or not) by conscience, or by chance.
