THE CHILEAN BUILDING

SUN, SEP 15 / 7 pm
DIR. MACARENA AGUILÓ
2010 | CHILE | 99 MINS

This story has never been documented before: While their parents battled the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile, a group of children were raised communally, first in Europe and then in Cuba. The 20 adults who supervised “Project Home” saw over 60 children through to adulthood, children whose mothers and fathers – members of the left wing revolutionary organization MIR (Movimiento de Izquierda Revolucionaria) – returned to Chile to fight for freedom, many never to be seen again.

Director Macarena Aguiló chose a very personal story for this, her first film, as she is one of the children who grew up in “Project Home.” Says Aguiló: “’Project Home’ was a powerful collective experience at a time when words like ‘social participation’ had a positive connotation. That was certainly the way that the children who lived there viewed their experiences: The sacrifices our parents made in their fight to change Chilean society left us with painful memories, but with beautiful ones, too.”
