Patricio Guzman chronicles the 1973 coup against Salvador Allende in parts one and two of his acclaimed documentary trilogy The Battle of Chile; this third part (1979) revisits some of the same events from a different perspective, and the comparative lack of momentum makes it the weakest of the three. Having traced the efforts of the right wing to strangle the Chilean economy in part one, Guzman this time stresses the workers’ tireless efforts to counter these conspiracies in defense of Allende’s socialist government. A trucking strike organized by the right wing backfires, leading to the creation of autonomous “industrial belts” that actually increase the workers’ control over production, and people’s stores, created as an alternative to the private shopkeepers who are in league with the truckers, feed half the population of Santiago. Through it all, workers express their solidarity on the streets, marching and denouncing the “mummies” who represent Chile’s capitalist past. As in all the films, one looks at the many faces Guzman captured at protests and political meetings and wonders what terrors those people faced after Pinochet took power. In Spanish with subtitles.
