SALVADOR ALLENDE

THU, SEP 12 / 7 pm
Directed by Patricio Guzman
2006, France, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Mexico, Chile, 100 min

A leftist revolutionary or a reformist democrat? A committed Marxist or a constitutional politician? An ethical and moral man or, as Richard Nixon called him, a “son of a bitch”? SALVADOR ALLENDE portrays the life, times and political formation of the Valparaiso-born doctor who was active in Chile’s Socialist party politics as a senator and who ran unsuccessfully for President three times before finally being elected in 1970.

Former U.S. Ambassador Korry provides an insider’s account of President Nixon and Henry Kissinger’s determination to thwart Allende, but he is unrepentant about the CIA-sponsored coup that overthrew the Chilean government.

Internationally acclaimed director Patricio Guzmán’s personalized voice-over commentary provides a compelling narrative thread for this political biography – one which, in his attempt to understand the impact of Allende on hiw own life and his nation’s political history, also serves to illuminate this controversial and inspirational public figure for an international audience.
