Me Duele La Memoria


They had to flee, fight for their lives, resist or go into exile. Our witnesses, Liliana, Joao, Teresa, Hector, Oscar and Alberto saw their lives change dramatically on 11 September 1973. On that day the armed forces of General Pinochet put a brutal end to the Chilean path towards socialism, a project of radical transformation initiated by President Allende and supported by an extraordinary popular movement.

In their moving, dignified and combative accounts, they share their life stories, evoke the difficulties faced in exile and for some, their return to their home country. Their memories are painful but necessary and their legacy a combination of hope and solidarity reminiscent of their fight for a fairer and more egalitarian society.
