The Best Battle
July 3 10:15 am
Feature Documentary | 2021 | Australia | 56 min | Directed by Antonio Traverso
An exploration of Santiago’s political street art during the 2019 / 2020 estallido social (social blast) that marked the remembrance of the 1973 coup.
Demonstrators’ posters, graffiti, murals, and poetry overtly connect the memory of the Chilean dictatorship with contemporary conditions and struggles.
Antonio Traverso’s experimental film takes the form of a cinematic essay, a psychogeographical walk through the city, the camera darting across the streets, immersing the viewer in the history and energy of the events.
Screens with the short film Night Landing At The Charles De Gaulle.
