The final installment of the epic documentary about Augusto Pinochet’s coup d'état rewinds to show working Chileans as they mobilize to put socialist ideals into practice in the months leading up to the coup.
The Battle of Chile
Patricio Guzmán’s sprawling three-part documentary provides a comprehensive on-the-ground look at the events leading up to the military overthrow of Chilean president Salvador Allende on September 11, 1973. Exactly fifty years later, BAM presents all three parts of this rarely screened masterpiece about one of the watershed events of the 20th century. Meticulous new restorations give shocking force to the visceral impact of these films, which have long been only available in degraded form.
