Since the September 11, 1973 coup that overthrew Salvador Allende, the democratically-elected socialist President of Chile, filmmaker Patricio Guzmán has produced a cycle of films exploring the aftermath of that national trauma. This talk looks at those films, in the context of a larger exploration of artworks which return to difficult pasts, and is part of a forthcoming book titled Now What? The Quandaries of the Radical Past.

Rachel Weiss is a writer, lapsed curator, and Professor in the Department of Arts Administration & Policy
