THE CITY OF PHOTOGRAPHERS

Dir: Sebastian Moreno Mardones
Chile / 2006 / 80mins

Sebastian Moreno Mardones's documentary examines the legacy of Chilean photojournalists who risked death to record life under Pinochet's brutal regime.

During Pinochet's long regime, a motley crew of photojournalists shot and framed Chile's people and turmoil from many points of view.

In the streets, in the middle of bloody riots and protests, these fearless photographers learned their craft and created many of the now legendary images which helped focus world attention on the Pinochet regime's repressive tactics.

Pinochet had the power and the guns, but these photographers had the camera – the people's weapon. They lived dangerously and they lived to tell. This is their story.
