“El año en que nací” surges from the same concept of the work “Mi vida después”. Young people born during the dictatorship's reconstruct the youth of their parents, from photos, letters, records, clothes, stories and memories erased.

«How was my country when I was born? How were my parents at that time? How many versions exist about what happened when I was young, because I do not remember?» are their questions. “Mi vida después” was released in Argentina, in 2009, and presented in Santiago a Mil, in 2011. In parallel to the presentations, a workshop was held with the same concept of the work: to present an album of fascinating biographies, in order to understand the recent history of Chile. For the edition of Santiago a Mil 2012, the group of young Chileans who made this workshop, led by Lola Arias, reconstructed the history of the generations born during the Pinochet dictatorship, from their own memories and documents.
