During the Pinochet regime in Chile, approximately 5000 detainees were brought to Villa Grimaldi: most were tortured, hundreds “disappeared”. Today, the Villa has been demolished. Three women discuss the future of the site where it once stood. Should it have a new life or remain a memorial to the crimes committed there? How should we remember the violence of the state?
