Zona Franca. Tourism, wealth and misery

Zona Franca is an outdated shopping district at the heart of Chile. 

Modern antiheroes bearing the burden of broken dreams, they demonstrate what can’t be found in the tour brochures: a violence deeply rooted in this place which only comes to light when a strike paralyses the region.
