FREE Screening | Chile’s Stories of Survival and Resistance

On October 22nd, 2019 at 19:30

The Plaza is proud to present a special double bill screening in association with Unison of the incredible Nae Pasaran and Chile’s 9/11.

Nae Pasaran tells the story of a Scottish town in 1974, factory workers refuse to carry out repairs on warplane engines in an act of solidarity against the violent military coup in Chile. Four years pass before the engines, left to rust in factory yard, mysteriously disappear in the middle of the night.

‘Chile’s 9/11’ is a UNISON documentary produced by Hurricane films combining archive footage and interviews. It is a moving and personal testimony of Javier Navarro, his work among the poor in Chile and his determination to survive. At the time of the coup he was a minister in Allende’s government, and like many of his compatriots was rounded up, imprisoned and subjected to systematic torture.

Eventually, Javier was exiled to Britain. Now an adopted scouser, he raised a family in Crosby and still lives locally. Javier will be attending on the night as guest of honour.

Join us on Tuesday 22nd October at 7:30pm for these stunning true stories.
