Chile, la memoria obstinada / CHILE, OBSTINATE MEMORY
It Happened Yesterday

After decades of military rule in Chile, Patricio Guzman returns to his country to screen his documentary, Battle of Chile, which until the time of filming was banned by the authorities. His audience, a new generation of Chileans who remember little of the revolution and ensuing coup, reflect on their experience of watching the film after so many years of suppression. For Guzman, this is the chance to discover the extent to which the oblivion enforced by the dictator has succeeded in destroying the memory and energy of a people.
PATRICIO GUZMAN Following the five years it took to make the trilogy La batalla de Chile (1975-1979), Guzman put the breaks on the speed of his production to more leisurely film La rosa de los vientos (1983), En nombre de Dios (1987) and La cruz del Sur (Southern Cross, 1992), returning to political documentaries with his last movie released to date: Chile, la memoria obstinada (Chile, the Obstinate Memory,1997). His work as a whole has made him the leading informant of the occurrences suffered by the Chilean people.
