SALVADOR ALLENDE

September 11, 1973, is a deeply symbolic date for Chile. President Salvador Allendes government was overturned in a coup détat and Allende committed suicide. The determination of this man to above all maintain democratic rule was also what led to his death. Salvador Allende retraces the life of this determined Marxist-humanist, delving into the supposed implication of the United States in the coup d'état. The film is a personal exploration into the history of his country and pays homage to this emblematic person «who marked my life», as Patricio Guzmán states.
