Patricio Guzmán


In October 2019, there was an unexpected revolution, a social explosion. One and a half million people demonstrated in the streets of Santiago for more democracy, a more dignified life, a better education, a better health system and a new Constitution. Chile had recovered its memory. The event Patricio Guzmán had been waiting for since his student struggles in 1973 finally materialized.

“It’s a vindication, not just for the nation, but for its most clear-eyed, full-hearted chronicler. Would that all countries were so lucky as to have a Patricio Guzmán, to help with the painful process of recovering what has been lost and, as with “My Imaginary Country,” occasionally to celebrate what has been gained.” —Jessica Kiang, Variety

“With civil liberties in America under attack, those willing to fight to keep the liberties we have in place could learn a thing or two from the Patricio Guzmán documentary My Imaginary Country.” —Valerie Comkplex, Deadline

“Despite all the sorrow from the ever-present trauma of young lives lost or permanently scarred, “My Imaginary Country” drips with the contagious thrill of hope... it is hard not to be moved.” —Rafaela Sales Ross, The Playlist

“Guzman’s heart and soul investment in the film and the snapshots of people power in action make for an emotional and involving documentary.” —Allan Hunter, Screen International

“Immensely moving.” —Kees Driessen, Business Doc Europe
