The Death of Pinochet
Q&A with directors Iván Osnovikoff and Bettina Perut
On Dec 10th, 2006, Pinochet dies in Santiago Miliary Hospital and soon the country explodes into all kinds of reactions. Perut and Osnovikoff go out into the streets and with their camera closely observe what happens, focusing mostly on a group of Pinochet followers. Fun, provocative and over the top, the film explores in an intimate and raw way a side of Chilean history rarely shown on film.
