Storyline

Known as Chile's Bob Dylan, Victor Jara was a fearless political singer who led the historic Nueva Cancion folk movement in Chile during the CIA-backed Pinochet dictatorship. Pinochet's regime eventually would torture and kill Jara - along with 3000 others - in the National Stadium, for writing a song about the covert killings. Written by Netflix

Surprised how engrossing this was!
22 January 2019 | by CountryRefuge2See all my reviews

I kept coming back to this film, trying to decide if I really wanted to watch it. I decided to check it out early one morning. This is a surprising gem that I will probably watch again. This documentary is about the political turmoil in Chile during the 1970's. It is about the military coup in 1973 termed "the first 9/11," and the murderous regime that followed.During the coup, thousands were brutally brought to a stadium in Santiago where many were tortured and murdered. Included in those murdered was Victor Jara, a beloved folk singer and activist who's works spread internationally. Many of those murdered were never identified.

This documentary also covers the search for justice of those killed that day, focusing on Victor Jara. In telling the story in this documentary, photos, video and interviews are used to great effect in keeping the story interesting and compelling. The story line and narration don't bog down on one facet--at least to me, and kept this riveting.
