This word-of-mouth triumph has been requested by Buxton Film regulars. In 1973 General Pinochet violently took power in Chile. British made Hawker Hunters were used in the bombing of government buildings. In 1974 the engines arrived for repair at the Rolls Royce factory in East Kilbride but the workers, in an act of solidarity with the people of Chile, decided not to touch them. Forty years later a young director explores this extraordinary stand in an emotional and powerful documentary combining archive footage, animation and an original soundtrack by Patrick Neil O’Doyle. Brillant.
This film is programmed by Buxton Film and features no trailers.
Director: Felipe Bustos Sierra
