Series: Patricio Guzmán's THE BATTLE OF CHILE

Chiléan master filmmaker Patricio Guzmán (Cannes-award winning CORDILLERA OF DREAMS, Academy Award shortlisted NOSTALGIA FOR THE LIGHT) made his name in global cinema in the 1970s with this three-part masterpiece of political verité filmmaking. Filmed on the streets of Chile during the tumultuous political struggle that resulted in Augusto Pinochet’s authoritative rise to power, this groundbreaking documentary puts the audience directly in the line of fire in order to document what a revolution looks and sounds like from its enthusiastic inception to its bitter demise. The three parts of the film will be shown on consecutive Tuesdays in October as part of our long-running Essential Cinema series, which makes the permanent move back to being a weekly Tuesday program.
