“A rare kind of political film-making”
“Provides a striking portrait of the fervor of revolution”
–The New York Times
“An unparalleled sense of being in the middle of the action”

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.
