“Machuca”

Commemorating the Sept. 11, 1973 CIA-backed coup in Chile

Pedro Machuca is a boy of indigenous descent, brought into an upper class private school during Chile’s brief socialist era when the government of President Salvador Allende began integrating schools on a class basis. The film shows the class conflicts of Chilean society played out in the friendships of three students. All around them, Chile drifts towards civil war. The enormous rift between two of the students—Gonzalo, who comes from a bourgeois household, and Pedro, who lives a few miles away in an illegal shantytown—ultimately becomes impossible to bridge once the bloody military coup of September 11, 1973 erupts. Directed by Andrés Wood, Chile, 2004, 121 min.
