Hennes liv
Paula Urbano

Paula Urbano went to Santiago de Chile where she has her ethnical roots to answer the question of who she would have been if she had been born in Chile instead of Sweden, where she grew up. Paula interviewed five different girls in her own age that grew up in Santiago and let them tell her about themselves. The interviews are a survey of the collective and of the individual, cultural identity. How has the dictatorship of Pinochet influenced these girls? Through them Paula mirrors her self and builds a fictitious self portrait.
