Anthology Film Archives, September 5!

Chilean filmmaker Patricio Guzman began filming the saga of his country's political turmoil in 1973. From the bloody, U.S.-backed coup d'etat that overthrew the democratically-elected Salvador Allende, his suicide, and then to years living under the dictator General Augusto Pinochet until his final arrest. Guzman's films, beginning with THE BATTLE OF CHILE, have become an epic record of political cinema, unparalleled in the history of cinema.

SALVADOR ALLENDE kicks of a series of screenings that will be the first time the complete sequence of Patricio Guzmán’s films tracing this history has been screened in the U.S. The series includes, in addition to SALVADOR ALLENDE, the three-part THE BATTLE OF CHILE (1975-1978), CHILE, OBSTINATE MEMORY (1997) and THE PINOCHET CASE (2001). More information on times and tickets at Anthology Film Archives.
