CHILE- GOLPE 11 sept

This video is a clip from Ken Loach’s short film in 11′09”01. In this ten minute film Loach tells the story of a different 9/11 that occurred in 1972. Much like the 9/11 of 2001, the American backed coup d’etat in Chile had catastrophic consequences. While most of the other short films in 11′09”01 deal with 9/11 directly, Loach uses 9/11 to shed light on an event that has largely been forgotten. By asking why some events take precedence over others Loach questions history itself.
