2022 NC Latin American Film Festival & Screen/Society present:


My Imaginary Country
(Patricio Guzmán, 2022, 83 min, Chile, Spanish w/ subtitles, Color, DCP)


One day, without warning, a revolution exploded. It was the event that master documentarian Patricio Guzmán had been waiting for all his life: a million and a half people in the streets of Santiago, Chile, demanding justice, education, health care, and a new constitution to replace the strident rules imposed on the country during the Pinochet military dictatorship. Urgent and inspired, My Imaginary Country features harrowing front-line protest footage and interviews with dynamic activist leaders and powerfully connects Chile’s complex, bloody history to contemporary revolutionary social movements and the election of a new president.


“Despite all the sorrow from the ever-present trauma of young lives lost or permanently scarred, My Imaginary Country drips with the contagious thrill of hope… it is hard not to be moved.” —Rafaela Sales Ross, The Playlist


Screen/Society screenings are free and open to the public. (COVID-19 Info)
