Black Bird Liberation Cinema
CHILE: SEPTEMBER 11TH,1973
Black Bird Liberation Cinema presents this year’s film series commemorating the 43rd Anniversary of the Bloody Coup D’état in Chile, bringing about the 17-year fascist dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. The films document the process(es) of Popular Power, and State repression before and after the Coup.
IN MEMORY OF THE FALLEN IN THIS PERMANENT UPRISING
“Many of the disappeared during the Pinochet dictatorship were thrown into the ocean. More than half were of indigenous dissent. One of them was Marta Ugarte.
Some say that water has memory. I believe it also has a voice.”
– From The Pearl Button
