Augusto Góngora, a veteran Chilean journalist and prominent chronicler of the crimes of the Pinochet regime, and Paulina Urrutia, actress, activist, and politician, have been a tight-knit loving couple for over 20 years.

Augusto was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s eight years ago. Paulina’s uncompromising dedication and Augusto’s fierce fight to hold on to his identity is a deeply affecting testimony to their love.

THE ETERNAL MEMORY is both an inquiry into human dignity in old age and adversity and into the mechanisms of individual and collective remembrance. What – and who – do we recall from our past? Why do we forget or suppress certain memories, and what effect does this have on a person, as well as on an entire country?
