They had to flee, fight for their lives, resist or go into exile. Our witnesses, Liliana, Joao, Teresa, Hector, Oscar and Alberto saw their lives change dramatically on 11 September 1973. On that day the armed forces of General Pinochet put a brutal end to the Chilean path towards socialism, a project of radical transformation initiated by President Allende and supported by an extraordinary popular movement.



About The Beyond Babel Multilingual Film Festival

Alluding to the Bible story of The Tower of Babel and the curse of diversity of tongues, Beyond Babel is a film festival that aims to celebrate multilingual life, showcase a wide range of films, share discussions on film aesthetics, and broaden the visibility of multilingual communities on screen. The 6th edition of Beyond Babel remains true to its core values: embrace the beauty of multilingualism; showcase transnational film productions from different regions of the world; curate multilingual films which connect with the personal, the local, and the global and can open conversation across cultures. This year’s programme will bring together four afternoons of screenings, with film introductions and Q&A sessions. It explores a wide range of themes: multilingualism, cultural differences, war, homeland, education, gender, global citizenship, mobility, immigration, integration and identity. The festival aims to engage, inspire, connect and celebrate the culturally diverse communities of Manchester. The film festival is organised by the research group Film, Languages and Media in Education (FLAME) with the support of the Department of Languages, Information and Communication, the Department of History at Manchester Metropolitan University and the Instituto Cervantes in Manchester.
