Alborada Films Documentary: Santiago Rising (PAL DVD)


Santiago Rising - an Alborada Films documentary directed by Nick MacWilliam.

Neoliberalism was born in Chile. And it will die in Chile.

Santiago Rising takes place on the streets of Chile’s capital city in late 2019 as massive protests over economic inequality engulf the country. Filmed during the weeks after protests began, we meet social movements, protesters and ordinary people in their struggle for equality and human rights.

The film charts the build-up to the historic vote, in October 2020, that saw Chileans vote for a new constitution to replace the one imposed during the brutal Pinochet dictatorship.

Santiago Rising emphasises the prominent role of music and art in political dissent. We also see the state’s attempts to crush the protest movement through a violent police crackdown.

Although the odds are stacked against them, Chileans find strength in unity as they fight to overcome Pinochet’s enduring legacy.
