Director Patricio Guzmán’s (Nostalgia for the Light) stirring documentary follows the “Estallido Social” uprising which began in Santiago, Chile in 2019.
A protest against the cost of living, inequality, privatisation and corruption - this timely film looks at the reaches of state influence, the politicisation of police powers and how the million and a half protestors mobilised.
A personal film for Guzman who has longed for the spark of revolution since the 1973 coup, it’s a gripping account of a country on the cusp of overdue change.
