How do people survive the terror and heartbreak of life under a brutal dictatorship? This hard-hitting film is a visual collage chronicling General Augusto Pinochet’s reign of terror in Chile. The imagery speaks for itself, as the film presents a scathing tableau of military rule. The exclusive film footage comes from the personal archives of a news camera operator who worked in Chile for 17 years. Poignant and subversive, it recounts the brutal atrocities suffered by Chileans, while championing their efforts to regain their freedom.

Images of a Dictatorship won Best Political Documentary at Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival and the Jutra Award for Best Documentary in 2000.

¿Cómo se sobrevive al terror y la dureza de vivir bajo una dictadura brutal? Esta película contundente es un collage visual que narra el reinado de terror del general Augusto Pinochet en Chile. La imagen habla por sí misma, ya que la película presenta un cuadro mordaz del régimen militar. El exclusivo material fílmico viene de los archivos personales de un camarógrafo de noticias que trabajó en Chile durante 17 años. Conmovedor y subversivo, la cinta relata las atrocidades brutales sufridas por los chilenos, pero también sus esfuerzos por recuperar su libertad.

PRESQUE VU

Canada, 2013
No dialogue/ 4 min

Director: Cecilia Araneda

Lush hand-crafted film footage and HD images combine to reveal a mysterious past through remnants of a memory that is almost remembered, but which never fully develops. There are words spoken in an indiscernible language, but they are not intended to be understood.

WHAT COMES BETWEEN
(LO QUE SEPARA)

Canada, 2009
English/ 5 min

Director: Cecilia Araneda

What Comes Between is an examination of personal memory and loss rooted in the filmmaker’s birthplace – Chile – and her departure from that country long ago. The work is a collage film created with found footage from personal and historical sources, and original hand printed and tinted footage.

Synopsis

The Internet’s Own Boy follows the story of programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz. From Swartz’s help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz’s groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aaron’s story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.
