Chile, Obstinate Memory Directed by Patricio Guzmán

Critics reviews

The emotionally-charged reactions that [Guzmán] captures are intense and complex. The sheer clash of what The Battle of Chile’s footage reveals with the blinded cultural memory of Chile is made palpable by the confusion, the tears and the harsh realizations worn on their faces. From preservation to restoration, Guzmán works to resurrect a lost memory, placing pieces of a puzzle to create a clearer picture of a nation’s history.
