Confronting Violent Histories:
Thinking the Present through Conversations with Former Chilean Paramilitary

Film screening of Special Circumstances and
conversation with former political prisoner Héctor Salgado

This is a free event, complimentary snacks and beverages will be provided

November 12th, 6:30pm - CIIS Mission Campus, room 607


About the film:
At 16, Héctor Salgado was arrested and tortured by Pinochet's forces. By 20, Héctor was without a country, living in exile in the US, the very place whose devastating foreign policies in Chile caused the death and torture of thousands of Chileans.
Special Circumstances follows Héctor as he returns to Chile almost 30 years later, camera in hand, to confront the perpetrators and his former captors looking for answers and justice. In the process, the documentary takes an unflinching look at US foreign policy in Latin America in the '70s, and the legacy of Pinochet with which Chile struggles today.
