Not Long Now: Stories of Chilean Soldiers in Haiti

  • A short documentary about the experience of the Chilean soldiers in Haiti.

    Oliver Contreras embeds himself three weeks with the Chilean soldiers of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) documenting the personal experiences of soldiers. Who is behind the peace keeping mission in Haiti? Who are these selfless men and women working to improve a country that is so far from home, and yet connected to their own as part of a globally recognized region? I seek to portray them as individuals part of a collective; each soldier has a story to tell and insight to offer about the mission and its purpose. This project will bring to light the heroic yet untold stories of the men and women of the Chilean armed forces.
