In the video, Errázuriz speaks about the reasons for leaving her professional life behind in the education field to become a self-taught photographer. Decisions taken in response to the military dictatorship and the need to photograph and record what was happening in Chile.

Errázuriz talks about important moments in her work and the specific interests that it reflects, including the difficult situations experienced in Chile, the issue of identity, the world of boxing, old age, and her 4 year work with a group of transvestites. Additionally, she delves into the subjects of black and white photography, the developing process, censorship, and her latest digital color photographs.
