Director: Patricio Guzmán Run Time: 83 min. Release Year: 2022 Language: Spanish w/ English subtitles

Tagline: One day, without warning, a revolution exploded. It was the event that master documentarian Patricio Guzmán had been waiting for all his life: a million and a half people in the streets of Santiago, Chile, demanding justice, education, health care, and a new constitution to replace the strident rules imposed on the country during the Pinochet military dictatorship.

Synopsis: One day, without warning, a revolution exploded. It was the event that master documentarian Patricio Guzmán had been waiting for all his life: a million and a half people in the streets of Santiago, Chile, demanding justice, education, health care, and a new constitution to replace the strident rules imposed on the country during the Pinochet military dictatorship. Urgent and inspired, MY IMAGINARY COUNTRY features harrowing front-line protest footage and interviews with dynamic activist leaders and powerfully connects Chile’s complex, bloody history to contemporary revolutionary social movements and the election of a new president.

Critic Quotes: “It’s a vindication, not just for the nation, but for its most clear-eyed, full-hearted chronicler. Would that all countries were so lucky as to have a Patricio Guzmán, to help with the painful process of recovering what has been lost and, as with “My Imaginary Country,” occasionally to celebrate what has been gained.” —Jessica Kiang, Variety

“With civil liberties in America under attack, those willing to fight to keep the liberties we have in place could learn a thing or two from the Patricio Guzmán documentary My Imaginary Country.” —Valerie Complex, Deadline

“Despite all the sorrow from the ever-present trauma of young lives lost or permanently scarred, “My Imaginary Country” drips with the contagious thrill of hope… it is hard not to be moved.” —Rafaela Sales Ross, The Playlist

“Guzman’s heart and soul investment in the film and the snapshots of people power in action make for an emotional and involving documentary.” —Allan Hunter, Screen International

“Immensely moving.” —Kees Driessen, Business Doc Europe
