(1975-79) by Patricio Guzmán
presented by Bob Buncher
"The major political film of our times - a magnificent achievement." – Tom Allen, Village Voice
"A landmark in the presentation of living history on film." – Judy Stone, San Francisco Chronicle
The Battle of Chile is a three-film document of the overthrow of socialist President Salvador Allende by General Augusto Pinochet, in 1973. Forty years after these events, Bob will show extended segments from each of the three films: "The Insurrection of the Bourgeoisie," "The Coup d'état," and "Popular Power."
