Cantata de Chile

  • Runtime: 1 hr. 59 min.
  • Genres: History, Propaganda Film


This Cuban film explores the history of oppression and exploitation in Latin America from the time of the Conquistadors to the CIA-sponsored overthrow of Allende in Chile. Particular emphasis is given to the Chilean army's massacre of striking mineworkers who worked in an English-owned nitrate mine. Poems, songs, artwork, and worker discussions carry forward the Party line in this political re-education-type film. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
