The Battle of Chile: Part One “The Insurrection of the Bourgeoisie (Patricio Guzman, 1975)

To understand the current battle for public education in Chile, we must go back to the beginning of neoliberalism in Chile – and what preceded it. In The Battle of Chile: Part One “The Insurrection of the Bourgeoisie (1975)” Patricio Guzman documents how Chile first democratically elected socialist president in Latin America – Salvador Allende’s – came to power in 1970. It is the first documentary of an award-winning trilogy in which Guzman shows Allende’s rise, and how after a bloody coup the dictator Pinochet turned Chile into a neo-liberal laboratory.
