PRIMERA chronicles the 2020 social uprising in Chile that started with a student protest over a transportation fare hike, and evolved into a national movement that resulted in the historic plebiscite that paved the way for the writing of a new constitution. The film offers an immersive look at the year-long process through the experiences of everyday Chileans who took to the streets and galvanized the country to demand structural change.

Filmmaker Vee Bravo and five of the documentary participants will join us in a discussion on the role of Latinx women in shapeshifting the political landscape, moderated by community organizer Paula X. Rojas.

This screening made possible by community partners The Grassroots Alliance and Indivisible Austin.
