Synopsis
´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  
apart. 
In September 2006, this train stopped running,  
isolating people in nearby areas and leaving railway  
workers, who had devoted their lives to this line,  
jobless. 
´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.
