There is an old Chilean saying that "Nothing ever happens in Chile". Since Pinochet's coup d'état, this is no longer tenable, although it seems that in the Chiloé archipelago, 1100 kilometers south of Santiago, time has largely stood still. Brigitte Grigent visited this group of islands for seven years. She recorded the Chilotes while there was still time. The result is the story of a people who believe in ghost ships, witches, God and the power of the community.
