Before, during and after - Chile, October 5 by Diamand, Frank
After the 1973 coup d ‘ etat and the death of Chilean president Allende, army general Augusto Pinochet ceased power. He remained president until 1990. During this time, the military Pinochet regime enforced economic reformations and banned all leftish parties. Furthermore, thousands of cases are known of civilians killed or tortured for political reasons. This film shows the plebiscite in 1988 when the majority of the Chileans voted against Pinochet. The outcome has led to democratic elections for the presidency and parliament.
