Wallmapu is a documentary filmed by Jeannette Pillán. It addresses Mapuche claims for land recovery, their struggle for self-determination and resistance to repression and invasion of Chilean and Argentine states. Since the Occupation of Araucanía, most of Mapuche lost their lands and were relocated in other places. This process was driven by Chilean and Argentinian states in the nineteenth century. Based on evidence of traditional authorities, leaders, and researchers Jeanette Pillán seeks to narrate history delivering the theme of the Mapuche territorial loss or so-called “Mapuche conflict”. The clip is the trailer of the film.
