Documentarian Patricio Guzmán has filmed the tumultuous political history of Chile for over fifty years. His commitment to filming the lived history of his country is unprecedented in world cinema. To mark the the 50th anniversary of the 1973 coup led by General Pinochet and his army, which drastically changed the history of Chile and Latin America, Icarus Films is proud to announce a special film series in New York City celebrating the work of the influential and lauded Chilean director and his five-decade career. The series is presented with Cinema Tropical, in partnership with Anthology Film Archives, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the IFC Center. In addition to the screenings, the series will also feature special conversations and Q&As with invited guests to discuss the international relevance of Guzmán’s filmography, and specific issues around history, memory, cinema, and the current state of Chilean politics and society.
