the Bourgeoisie)

Patricio Guzman, 1975, 96 minutes


Synopsis:

Salvador Allende begins a program of profound social and political transformations. From day one, the right organizes a series of wildcat strikes against him, while the White House asphyxiates him economically. In spite of the boycott - in March of 1973 - the parties in support of Allende win 43.4 percent of the vote. The right comes to understand that legal mechanisms will no longer work for them. From then on, their strategy will be the strategy of the military coup. "The Battle of Chile" is a fresco which shows, step by step, these acts that shook the world.

+ Q&A with Oscar Guardiola Rivera - academic and author of new book on the military coup in Chile "Story of a Death Foretold".
