The Surire salt flat is located in the Chilean high plateau at 4,300 meters over the sea level, on the border with Bolivia. In its surroundings live a handful of elders, the last survivors of the Aymara culture in the area. As background, the machinery of a mine site roams the landscape, intermingled with flamingos, vicunas and llamas. SURIRE is a film that from observation and cinematic language portrays this unique space in which coexist natural beauty, human absurdity, and cultural decline.
