The last 7 hours of democratically elected former President of Chile Salvador Allende and his closest collaborators, inside the Palace of La Moneda, during the brutal military coup d’etat on Sept. 11, 1973, the day democracy in Chile ended. Based on true events.
Chilean film maestro Miguel Littin transforms the last hours of Salvador Allende into an urgent and atmospherically tense chamber piece. Daniel Muñoz is magisterial as the honorable president under attack, bringing out the many sides of Allende with a palpable ferocity and lyrical tenderness.
