Chicago Reader

The year is 1973 and the Chilean parliamentary elections are right around the corner. Tensions are high as protesters, mobs, workers, and soldiers clash in the streets. Documentary filmmaker Patricio Guzmán’s camera captures all of this and more with astounding clarity and authenticity in this first part in a three-part political documentary.
