Neue Brüder is staged in the south of Chile, a territory which was settled by European immigrants in the late 19th century, and has since been intensively exploited by various industries and infrastructures at the expense of the indigenous Mapuche people.

The film emblematizes landscape itself as the protagonist of some carefully chosen single shots. Through the weaving of interviews conducted with a variety of people from those regions – which convey a plurality of visions and a polyphony of discourses –, the viewer is eventually brought to perceive a critical deconstruction of the landscape. Freed from any naturalism, the landscape becomes a medium.
