An uplifting and inspiring documentary. The longest and most emotional round of applause I've experienced in the cinema.
A very personal film for the director and those being documented, which comes through as the heart of its appeal. It's a tremendous and principled act of international solidarity and resistance, from East Kilbride to Santiago, which this documentary helps to receive its deserved awareness and adulation. Much of the background and context to Pinochet's dictatorship is shamefully not well known.
The documentary is at its best when simply capturing the reactions and stories of those involved (at times heartwarming, hilarious and touching) with no bias or emotional steering. The archive footage is great and interesting, although some of the CGI is a bit ropey.
