The Mapocho is a river running through Santiago of Chile, but also serves as the site of a construction camp for the city’s financial district. Ironically, the locals refer to the neighborhood as Sanhattan (a merge word between Santiago and Manhattan). As we watch a day in the “making of” the contemporary expression of modernity in Santiago, we listen to philosopher Jean Paul-Dollé lecturing at the ENSAPLV about Heidegger and reflecting upon bridges and drives to modernity.
