Life at the end of the road
Students and teachers from the University of North Carolina School of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Universidad de los Andes went to Patagonia, and made this bilingual web documentary. Photographs, video, audio and graphics introduce the land, sea and people of the southernmost tip of America.
There is a lot of rich material here - video interviews with ranchers, a virtual reality tour of a mansion in Punta Arenas, and dozens of other stories. To my delight there is video footage, with crew interviews, of a Chilean Navy ship bringing a fresh crew of lighthouse keepers to Faro Islas Diego Ramirez - an offshore lighthouse to the south of Cape Horn.
