This work reflects on the forced disappearances of more than 40,000 people which took place in Chile from 1973 until 1990, during Augusto Pinochet’s regime. Pit is an homage to the labor that took place during the years of the Calama women who searched incessantly for the rest of their families in the Atacama Desert.
