LatinoBuzz: Chile!

September 11 marked a very different occasion in Chile. It was 40 years ago that a CIA backed military operation ousted a democratically elected president and launched 17 years of fear and violence on the nation. Chilean artists only survived if they went in to exile and film schools were closed. Expression wasn't encouraged so it's incredible that today these Chilenos and Chilenas have a voice and have made such an impact on the international film landscape.

September 11 marked a very different occasion in Chile. It was 40 years ago that a CIA backed military operation ousted a democratically elected president and launched 17 years of fear and violence on the nation. Chilean artists only survived if they went in to exile and film schools were closed. Expression wasn't encouraged so it's incredible that today these Chilenos and Chilenas have a voice and have made such an impact on the international film landscape.


They came through the dictatorship and have an admiration and camaraderie with one another that inspires each other with an unbreakable bond. Today is Chilean Independence day and we wanted to ask these filmmakers who has inspired them. As a Chileno, I dedicate this to my mother.
