US-backed fascists destroy democratically-elected socialist government of Chile through years of economic strangulation topped by bloody 1973 coup. Thousands murdered by subsequent dictatorship. Very long collection of live films and interviews. Prior knowledge of events helpful. Most moving part: Disc 4, years later, remembrance of lost family and friends by survivors, and reflections on this national tragedy by Chilean students.
