A documentary that chronicles Chile's peaceful socialist revolution, and the violent counter-revolution that arose in 1973. The film's dramatic concluding sequence documents the actual coup d-etat, including Allende's last radio message to the people of Chile, footage of the military assault on the presidential palace, and that evening's televised presentation of the new military junta. Directed by Patricio Guzman.
