A film based on the disappearance of journalist Charles Horman. A father searches for his missing son during the oppressive and violent political chaos of the 1973 Chilean coup. Seeking help from local bureau of the U.S. State Department, family frustration grows as the situation becomes more complex.
A film based loosely on actual events. A declassified document released in 1999 by the U.S. Government appears to contradict the State Department's official statement on the film, supporting the essential themes of the film. From http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/news/19991008/

  • Disc 3 : Фильм о Михаиле Константиновиче Калатозове = [A film about Mikhail Konstantinovich Kalatozov] (ca. 102 min., col. w/ b&w seq.).
"[I am Cuba], director Mikhail Kalatozov and cinematographer Sergei Urusevsky's hybrid offspring of Soviet orthodoxy and Cuban tropicalismo, is a film of dazzling contrasts. In four intertwining stories of the revolution, Urusevsky's acrobatic camera takes the viewer on a dizzying ride through smoky nightclubs and rooftop pool parties, rickety shantytowns and rustling sugarcane fields, student protest rallies and remote guerilla outposts."--Container.
In 'O mamute Siberiano, ' Vicente Ferraz documents the making of Soy Cuba, which was largely panned by Cubans, the Soviet Union and the West at its release, then nearly forgotten. Using new and archival footage and interviews, he also contrasts the Cuba shown in the film with the Cuba forty years later. Surviving members of the cast and crew are interviewed regarding the film's rediscovery and subsequent reclassification as a cinema masterpiece.
'A film about Mikhail Konstantinovich Kalatozov' is a "comprehensive documentary on this giant of Russian cinema."--Container.

In 1973, the Chilean military, under the direction of General Augusto Pinochet and backed by the CIA, overthrew the shaky socialist government of democratically elected President Salvador Allende. The coup led to the murder of 3,000 leftist Allende supporters and the detention of an estimated 250,000 political prisoners. Set against the background of the political instability that led to the crisis, Andrés Wood's Machuca is the moving story of the friendship between two twelve-year-old boys from different sides of the social spectrum.

"More than 300,000 children presently serve in armies in over 40 countries. Based on the true story of screenwriter Oscar Torres's embattled childhood, Luis Mandoki's Innocent Voices is the poignant tale of Chava (Carlos Padilla), an eleven-year-old boy who suddenly becomes the 'man of the house' after his father abandons the family in the middle of a civil war. In El Salvador in the 1980s, the government's armed forces are already recruiting twelve year olds, rousting them out of their classes at the local middle school. If he is lucky, Chava has just one year of innocence left, one year before he, too, will be conscripted to fight the government's battle against the peasant rebels of the FMLN. Chava's life becomes a game of survival, not only from the bullets of the escalating war, but also from the dispiriting effects of daily violence. As he hustles to find work to help his single mother pay the bills, and experiences the pangs of first love for a beautiful classmate, Chava's tiny home village becomes both playground and battlefield. Armed only with the love of his mother (Leonor Varela) and a small radio that broadcasts a forbidden anthem of love and peace, and faced with the impossible choice of joining either the army or the rebels, Chava finds the courage to keep his heart open, and his spirit alive, in his race against time"--http://www.innocentvoicesmovie.com.

" An illuminating study of an important actor in a decisive moment of Chilean history, and a valuable and original contribution to Latin American history and politics and women's studies, which both presents new information and explores significant theoretical issues." -Peter Winn, Tufts University When over five thousand women took to the streets of Santiago to protest Salvador Allende's Popular Unity government on December 1, 1971, their March of the Empty Pots and Pans signaled the beginning of a mass opposition movement and prompted the later formation of Feminine Power, a multi-class organization that played a critical role in paving the way for the military coup in 1973. Drawing on extensive interviews with leaders and participants, Margaret Power tells the story of these right-wing women, examining their motives, the tactics they employed, and the impact of their ideas and activity on Chilean society and politics. The ability of the right to exploit established ideas about gender, Power argues, was key to the opposition's success, and she explores how conservatives appealed to women as wives and mothers to mobilize them.Power also pays attention to the earlier history of these efforts, including the formation of Women's Action of Chile in 1963, and to the support provided by the U. S. government. The epilogue examines right-wing women's reactions to the arrest of Augusto Pinochet in 1998 and their role in the elections of 2000. By focusing on the women who opposed Allende and supported Pinochet, this book offers a fresh look at the complex dynamics of Chilean politics in the last half of the twentieth century.

In 1980, Richard Boyle, a veteran war photographer whose career needs a boost, heads for El Salvador to cover the civil war there. He forms an uneasy alliance with both guerrillas in the countryside who want him to get pictures out to the US press, and the right-wing military, who want him to bring them photographs of the rebels. After the murder of Archbishop Romero, the rape and murder of an American nurse and three nuns, and the death of a fellow journalist, Boyle attempts to escape El Salvador with his Salvadorean girlfriend Maria and her family.
