PINOCHETíS CHILDREN

Part of the Human Rights Watch film series
OCT 9 THU 7 P.M.
GUILD THEATRE
PINOCHET'S CHILDREN
GERMANY 2002
DIRECTOR: PAULA RODRIGUEZ Alejandro Goic was 16, Enrique Paris,12, and Carolina TohŠ, eight years old, when General Pinochet seized power in Chile on September 11, 1973. During the coup Alejandro and Carolina lost their fathers, and all three lost their innocence and their youth. And eventually all went on to become powerful student leaders in the tumultuous'80s. With thoughtful, emotional interviews and rich archival footage, PINOCHET'S CHILDREN is a remarkable film that beautifully renders three people's course of life against the background of the socio-political developments in their homeland. (83 mins.)

Admission prices: $7 general, $6 Students/seniors/art museum members

I haven't seen this film but am definitely going to see it now that it's coming to Portland. I have read some very interesting and positive reviews about it and encourage others to see it. Especially in the wake of all the attention that Venezuela is getting these days, I think it serves us well to look back on the ugly history of US and CIA involvement in Latin American countries and work to ensure that it is not repeated in Venezuela today.
