Summary La batalla de Chile : "On September 11, 1973, President Salvador Allende's democratically-elected Chilean government was overthrown in a bloody coup by General Augusto Pinochet's army. Patricio Guzmán and five colleagues had been filming the political developments in Chile throughout the nine months leading up to that day. The bombing of the Presidential Palace, during which Allende died, would now become the ending for Guzmán's seminal documentary ... [a] chronicle of that country's open and peaceful socialist revolution, and of the violent counter-revolution against it."--Container.
Chile, obstinate memory: "Long banned in Chile after Pinochet's coup, only in 1997 could Guzmán return to show The Battle of Chile there for the first time. [This film] is the ... record of that homecoming," and acts as a conclusion to the documentary. -- From container.
