The Exiles: Films After the Chilean Coup
Following the bloody coup that overthrew Salvador Allende's government in 1973, several prominent Chilean artists and intellectuals fled the county, seeking amnesty in Europe and North America.

Among them were: Raúl Ruiz, Allende's "Cinema Advisor" and maker of over 100 internationally renowned films; Marilú Mallet, an aspiring architect-turned-filmmaker who fled to Canada; and Patricio Guzmán, who spent the year leading up to the coup filming The Battle of Chile, his epic and indispensable document of Allende's election and the violent counter-revolution that overthrew him.

The three films in this program showcase the work of these artists years after they left Chile. They explore the interminable struggles of exile, the difficultly of preserving memory in an oblivion of history, and reevaluations of identity in the absence of recognizable place.
