ABOUT THE FILM (NO): After fifteen years of military dictatorship and facing considerable international pressure, Chile's government asks the public of Chile to vote in the national plebiscite of 1988 on whether General Augusto Pinochet should stay in power for another eight years, or whether there should be an open democratic presidential election the following year.
ABOUT THE SERIES: The last 3 nights of our 2017 Films & Spanish Conversation Meet-Ups will explore how three of the most critically acclaimed Chilean films of the past decade blend documentary and fiction techniques to tackle some of the nation's most controversial moments.
The series will take us from a government's wild hunt of a beloved poet-turned-fugitive (Neruda), to a marketing team's efforts against the continuation of Pinochet's dictatorship (No), and finally, to the Atacama desert. A place filled with astronomers looking at the stars and women searching the sand for the bones of their loved ones.(Nostalgia For The Light)
ABOUT FILMS & SPANISH CONVERSATION: All films will be shown in Spanish with English subtitles. A wine reception will follow in which El Taller's Spanish teachers will facilitate Spanish conversation about the movies and related topics.
