Join us for a CONTINUOUS SCREENING of The Battle of Chile on September 11th at MSU’s Broad Museum!
In conjunction with The Edge of Things: Dissident Art Under Repressive Regimes exhibition at MSU’s Broad Museum, the MSU Latinx Film Festival will show Patricio Guzmán’s The Battle for Chile, widely considered one of the best political documentaries ever made, on Wednesday, September 11th in memory of the U.S.-backed military coup that took place in Chile on that day in 1973. The Battle of Chile documents the political tensions and social struggles during the dramatic months leading up to that dark day for democracy in Latin America and the world. A continuous screening of the film starts at 12:30pm with a short introduction by Scott Boehm, LxFF Director & Assistant Professor of Spanish; Ed Murphy, Associate Professor of History; and Laura Romero, Ph.D. Candidate in Hispanic Studies.
