Synopsis

An account of recent political events in Chile and their historical background. Stills illustrate the history up to 1970, when news footage takes over, and Allende's election on September and investiture in November are shown. The larger part of the film, however, is made up of material specially shot from September 1972 to May 1973 by Chileans who prefer to remain anonymous and whose identity cannot be divulged.
