The Battle of Chile Part 1 + 2
(Patricio Gusmàn, 184 mins, color, Spanish with English subtitles)
One of the near universally acknowledged masterworks of politically engaged nonfiction, Guzmán’s opus tells the entire story of the life and death of the democratically elected government of President Salvador Allende. Shot on the ground by Guzmán and collaborators over the course of nine months marked by optimism and heartbreak, assembled in exile, and praised by the Village Voice as “The major political film of our time,” it remains uncontested as a work of cinematic bearing witness.
