Texte

This portrait shows the last hours of the Chilean president Salvatore Allende. In the early hours of the morning of 9/11/1973, the revolt of the Chilean military under General Pinochet against the elected Chilean president burst. Barricaded in his presidential palace in Modena with few faithful, Allende refuses to give in to the rebels' ultimatum. While the military finally attacks the palace, Allende shoots himself next door. A film Sélection Visions du Réel
