Mi país imaginario / My Imaginary Country
by Patricio Guzmán
In October 2019, the increase in metro fares in Santiago de Chile leads to unexpectedly violent protests. Although the government uses the army against its own citizens, one-and-a-half million people soon gather to demonstrate for democracy, better education and a new constitution. The women's chants ring out especially loudly. Chile's master documentary filmmaker Patricio Guzmán captures the long-awaited revolt in his homeland with vivid images from the streets of Santiago and interviews with numerous female activists. A refreshing contemporary document that gets under the skin.
