La batalla de Chile (1ª Parte): La insurrección de la burguesía / THE BATTLE OF CHILE (PART 1): THE INSURRECTION OF THE BOURGEOISIE
It Happened Yesterday

During the third year of President Salvador Allende's mandate in Chile, both the right and left wings are passionately organizing their campaign for the parliamentary elections as the camera takes to the street to film the action with no intermediaries. The upper and managerial classes intend to topple the socialist government. Politicians, activists and ordinary citizens give their opinions, creating a direct and lively chronicle of events prior to the tragedy of September 1973. The Chilean people play the leading role in this report of increasing perspective with the passing of time.
PATRICIO GUZMAN Santiago de Chile, 1941. Studied cinema in Madrid and in his native city, a factor subsequently permitting him to express his resolute political engagement via either documentaries or semi-fiction combined with real historical facts. He favours unusual aesthetical constructions such as the application of sustained sequence shots intended to improve the dimension of the dramatic content and sidestep potentially over-obvious elemental sensationalism.
