After Pinochet: The Healing of a Country’s Wounded Heart (dir. Annabel Aguirre, UK/Chile 2008) 60 mins

After Pinochet is an investigation into the healing, after many years of enforced silence, of a divided nation. It explores, through the eyes of British-based Chilean filmmaker Annabel Aguirre, how many Chileans are still striving for truth and justice, while others just wish to move on. The documentary interviews men and women from different backgrounds and political persuasions and a wide variety of experiences that range from persecution, imprisonment, torture, exile and loss of family members under Pinochet, to a total adoration of the dictator, the certain belief that he did nothing wrong and unmitigated fury against those who seek to prove his crimes. It also explores Annabel’s own family history to examine the Chilean psyche and discover what lies behind the façade of peace and stability in Chile.

Followed by Q&A with Annabel Aguirre (Independent Filmmaker, UK/Chile)
Moderator: Vicky Frost (Falmouth University, UK)

Dr. Julian Ward (University of Edinburgh, UK)

“We would be wise to understand them a little better than we do now”: A Scottish Cameraman’s 1971 Trip to China”

Lewis McLeod was a professional cameraman whose career covered an astounding range of subject matter from wildlife documentaries to the Arab-Israeli war of 1967. In 1971 McLeod travelled to China, at a time when the country was closed off to an extent that is unimaginable today, and a year before Richard Nixon’s historic visit. After being kept in storage for many years, the 10,000 feet of film that he shot, as well as a series of short essays describing various aspects of his trip, were donated to the University of Edinburgh in 2012. Digital copies of the film have now been made, revealing images that switch from the utterly distant to the reassuringly familiar.
