"Vivid, heartening and inspirational. Guzmán’s heart and soul investment in the film and the snapshots of people-power in action make for an emotional and involving documentary."  - Allan Hunter, Screen International

"It’s a vindication, not just for the nation, but for its most clear-eyed, full-hearted chronicler. Would all countries be so lucky as to have a Patricio Guzmán, to help with the painful process of recovering what has been lost and, as with MY IMAGINARY COUNTRY, celebrate what has been gained." - Jessica Kiang, Variety

In 2019, a protest exploded in Santiago when 1.5 million Chileans took to the streets to demand democracy, dignity, and a new constitution. With great optimism and hope, master documentarian Guzmán (THE BATTLE OF CHILE) captures the revolution he had been waiting for his whole life. Film Center exclusive; one week only.
