The Chicago Conspiracy Comes to the LA Area!
The Chicago Conspiracy is a documentary three years in the making. This Subversive Action Films project was filmed in Chile, and the story extends into the Mapuche indigenous lands of Wallmapu.
The Chicago Conspiracy takes its name from the approximately 25 Chilean economists who attended the University of Chicago and returned to assist Pinochet’s military regime in imposing free market policies. Departing from the street celebrations by thousands of people after hearing of Pinochet’s death, The Chicago Conspiracy exposes a new vision of the military coup that doesn’t focus on the story of the Allende government. The film looks instead at the current political conflict and the revolutionary political initiatives, social discontent and organizing by combatant youth, politically active neighborhoods, students, families and loved ones of the disappeared and the Mapuche resistance against oblivion, repression, neoliberalism, militarism and authoritarianism.
Film screening will be followed by a discussion with the director. Screening
will be accompanied by a photo exhibit of social struggles in Chile.
