El poder de la palabra (The Power of Speech)
US Premiere

El poder de la palabra
The Power of Speech
Francisco Hervé
Chile, Documentary, 2009
75 min, Mini DV, Color
Spanish with English subtitles

Hardy, along with many other Chileans, makes a living selling knickknacks on the buses of Santiago. But in 2005 the government announces that Chile "will soon become a world class country and we will have a modern and elegant public transportation system," meaning they will no longer tolerate commerce on buses. As a result, Hardy brings together two thousand colleagues in a struggle to survive modernity. Without attempting to impose a master narrative, the film presents glimpses into the mobilization of proponents of informal economy in the face of government attempts to sell its âmodernâ policy. El poder de la palabra won a Special Jury Prize at the Festival Internacional de Documentales de Santiago in 2009.
