The Film

Iselsa, Kathy, tribal leader Ivan, and 150 other marginalized families from Valparaiso, Chile, are chosen to participate in a social experiment that moves them into a middle-class neighborhood. But their new neighbors consider them delinquents who would endanger the neighborhood. Filmed over four years, 74 Square Meters explores what happens when two worlds collide, and looks at the struggles of attaining one's dreams.
