Spanish Film Festival hosted by Amherst College at the Stirn Auditorium at Amherst College (220 S Pleasant St). All screenings are at 7pm on Wednesdays thru April 24th. Films are free, open to the public and subtitled in English.This week's film is LA MUERTE DE PINOCHET [The Death of Pinochet].
On December 10, 2006, General Pinochet died in Santiago’s Military Hospital. For 24 hours, his death reawakened the political divisions that marked Chile’s recent history with dictatorship, death and violence. In The Death of Pinochet, the directors use original footage and the testimonies of four characters who lived through that day, to relate the end of a key chapter in Chile’s history. A work that balances tragedy and comedy, it is a surprising portrait of Chilean society.
