This documentary addresses the legacy of US-
sponsored neoliberalism in Chile by sharing the
story of combatant youth who were killed by
the Pinochet regime and the past and present
social conflict that arose from the repressive
government. The larger story weaves together
three shorter pieces which explore the militant
student movement, the history of neighborhoods
that became centers of armed resistance
against the dictatorship, and the indigenous
Mapuche resistance. The filmmakers, radical
film collective Subversive Action Films, question
their place as documentarians of the conflict.
The screening is co-sponsored by IU’s
International Studies Program, Departments of Criminal Justice and Labor Studies, and IU Cinema.
