The Death of Pinochet, documentary screening

LaRose Digital Theatre, Koury Business Center, 6 p.m.

In 2006, Gen. Augusto Pinochet died in Santiago’s Military Hospital. For 24 hours, his death reawakened the political divisions that marked Chile’s recent history with dictatorship, death and violence. In The Death of Pinochet (2011), Bettina Perut and Ivan Osnovikoff use original footage and the testimonies of four characters who lived through that day, to relate the end of a key chapter in Chile’s history.
