Chile’s Student Uprising (Documentary Premiere)
Chile’s Student Uprising tells the story of the student protests taking place in Chile today demanding a free and state-funded education system and radical change in society. The film puts the protests in their historical context of widespread dissatisfaction with the economic model put in place under the Pinochet dictatorship (1973-1990), but that still remains largely in place.
The film’s director travelled to Chile between 2011 and 2013 to speak to then student leaders such as Camila Vallejo and Giorgio Jackson, and also to ordinary students, to explore why their protests have caused such effect in Chile and inspired others in the country and beyond.
Time: 5.30pm-8.30pm (film starts at 6.15pm and will be followed by a Q&A with the director Roberto Navarrete)
