Chile, The Pinochet Project »
I spent nearly two years enmeshed in the history of Chile’s brutal dictatorship, a regime that killed more than 3,000, and tortured thousands more. Although my research ended in 2011, the struggle between the extreme right and left in Chile, the Pinochet loyalists and human rights victims, continues. The New York Times just published an article by a journalist I knew in Chile named Pascale Bonnefoy, that exemplifies the dichotomy in how Chileans remember Pinochet and his rule even now, 20 years later. Here’s the link to the New York Times article titled: “Hundreds Protest Screening of Pro-Pinochet Film in Chile,” and if you’re curious about my own findings, you can visit the Pinochet Project Page found on this site.
