DVCAM TRANSFERRED TO 35MM, BLACK AND WHITE AND COLOUR, DOLBY DIGITAL, 100 MINUTES, FRANCE/BELGIUM/CHILE/FRANCE/GERMANY/SPAIN/MEXICO, SPANISH (ENGLISH SUBTITLES) / DIRECTOR/SCRIPT: PATRICIO GUZMÁN / CINEMATOGRAPHERS: PATRICIO GUZMÁN, JULIA MUÑOZ / EDITOR: CLAUDIO MARTINEZ / PRINT SOURCE/RIGHTS: JBA PRODUCTIONS

‘Guzmán’s moving portrait of the Chilean leader retraces the path of his early years and the terrible end of his political career, speaking with surviving friends, family members and loyal followers in order to define the personality and political ideas that guided his revolutionary program. Combining archival photographs with stirring footage from contemporary newsreels and The Battle of Chile, Guzmán’s documentary balances Allende’s own words- including his last radio address recorded shortly before his death – with the memories of those he inspired, including Guzmán himself whose commentary reflects upon Allende’s profound influence upon his life and films. A deeply personal and poetic archaeology, Salvador Allende revisits sites and memories still resonant with Allende’s presence and colored by a palpable sadness and sense of loss.’ Harvard Film Archive

El Caso Pinochet (The Pinochet Case) 2001 Ages 15+

Sat 14 Dec 3.00pm and Fri 20 Dec 8.00pm / Cinema A

DVCAM TRANSFERRED TO 35MM, COLOUR, MONO, 110 MINUTES, FRANCE/CHILE/BELGIUM/SPAIN, SPANISH/ENGLISH (ENGLISH SUBTITLES) / DIRECTOR/SCRIPT: PATRICIO GUZMÁN / CINEMATOGRAPHER: JACQUES BOUQUIN / EDITOR: CLAUDIO MARTINEZ / PRINT SOURCE/RIGHTS: THE FESTIVAL AGENCY / SCREENING FORMAT: DIGITAL BETACAM

‘Guzmán immediately lept into action just as soon as he heard news of Augosto Pinochet’s surprise arrest for human rights violations in October 1998 during an extended visit to London. Capturing the crowds of anti- and pro-Pinochet supporters who crowded the site of Pinochet’s house arrest, Guzmán also extensively features voices for and against the prosecution of Chilean dictator, speaking extensively to the Spanish judge Baltasar Garzón who masterminded the trial as well as Pinochet friends and supporters. At the center of the film are Guzmán’s moving encounters with victims of Pinochet’s worst crimes, those who suffered horrendous torture or the assassination of a loved one and who spoke out for the first time for the film and for the cause of the trial, reliving their nightmares. With subtlety and the greatest respect for the victims Guzmán films makes frighteningly clear the depth of darkness and suffering caused by the unchecked savagery of the Pincohet years.’ Harvard Film Archive
