´STOP, LOOK, LISTEN´ is a documentary film that
recounts the ´absence´ of the train.
The C-14 line goes from Salta City (Argentina) to a
frontier station at Socompa.
The line runs through contrasting landscapes, from
the greens at ´Campo Quijano´ to the Puna desert.
It comes across several small villages, reaching its
highest point at 4,500 metres.
The train was used not only to transport minerals
from and to Chile but also as a communication
means for people living in this remote area.
After many years of poor administration and faulty
policies, the Argentine railway network is coming
In September 2006, this train stopped running,
isolating people in nearby areas and leaving railway
workers, who had devoted their lives to this line,
´STOP, LOOK, LISTEN´ ´ is a journey through the
past and present of the many people whose lives
revolve around the train, as well as a portrayal of
their future hopes.
