On December 10, 2006, General Pinochet dies unexpectedly in Santiago’s Military Hospital. For 24 hours, his death reawakens the political divisions that marked Chile’s recent history with death and violence. Using original footage and the testimonies of four characters who lived through that day of profound contrasts and shades of surrealism, the film relates the end of a key chapter in Chile’s history. A work between tragic and comic, surprising portrait of Chilean society.
Director Bettina Perut & Ivan Osnovikoff have been working together since the late 1990. The Italian/Chilean duo are reknowned for pushing the boundaries of documentary as a genre and have achieved great success in film festivals around the world.
