RESISTENCIA: THE CITY OF PHOTOGRAPHERS

Part of Resistencia: Focus on Latin America
Dir: Sebastián Moreno
Chile / 2006 / 80mins

During Pinochet's long regime, a motley crew of photojournalists gradually brought about a revolution. In the middle of bloody riots and protests, they learned their craft and created many of the now legendary images. For them, taking pictures was a type of resistance. Pinochet had the power and the guns, but these photographers had the camera - the people's weapon.

A panoramic view across Latin America today, from life at the Mexican border, through the Peruvian jungle, and all the way to the streets of Santiago. Join us for a day of revealing documentaries and illuminating discussion.
