Part 2: The Coup d’etat opens with the attempted military coup of June 29, 1973, which is put down by troops loyal to the government. It serves as a useful dry run for the final showdown, which is only a matter of time. The film shows a left divided over strategy, while the right methodically lays the groundwork for the military seizure of power. It also documents the actual coup d’etat, including Allende’s last radio messages, footage of the military assault on the presidential palace, and that evening’s televised presentation of the new military junta. In Spanish with English subtitles. (DigiBeta Presentation)
