Inspired by the 2021 national strikes of his home country, the simulated society of Los Caídos sees a range of characters clash with government forces in battles incited by algorithmic culture. Ultimately, Los Caídos emerges as “a community in expansion, on the lookout for a new way of relating to conscious realities, driven by a love for the collective, for support and for empathy”.
