South of Here is a documentary multimedia project produced by students from the University of North Carolina School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Facultad de Comunicación at the Universidad de los Andes in Santiago, Chile. It explores the history, people and communities of Tierra del Fuego in Argentina and Chile, the surrounding waterways and their critical relationship to the environment.
Stories are told in both English and Spanish.
I visited Puerto Toro on Navarino Island in southern Chile, the southern-most settlement in the world, to contribute the video “Population 36.”
