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. (Digital presentation)

The screening is co-sponsored by IU’s International Studies Program, Departments of Criminal Justice and Labor Studies, and IU Cinema. Special thanks to Bradley Stroot.
