Santiago Rising Trailer: Nick MacWilliam. Alborada films. 2021 (I minute)
Santiago Rising takes place on the streets of Chile’s capital city in late 2019 as massive protests over economic inequality engulf the country. Santiago Rising meets social movements, protesters and ordinary people in their struggle for human rights. In October 2020, Chileans voted for a new constitution to replace the one imposed during the brutal Pinochet dictatorship. The film emphasises the role of music and art in political dissent. We also see the state’s failed attempts to crush the protest movement.
