"Drips with the contagious thrill of hope."—Rafaela Sales Ross, The Playlist

"With unassuming, generous elegance, the Chilean doc master finds hope and political optimism in his homeland's 2019 protest movement."—Jessica Kiang, Variety

"Patricio Guzmán’s documentary leaves open the possibility of a future for Chileans that isn’t beholden to the trauma of history."—Chris Barsanti, Slant Magazine

One day, without warning, a revolution exploded. It was the event that 80-year-old master documentarian Patricio Guzmán had been waiting for and working toward all his life: a million and a half people in the streets of Santiago, the Chilean capital, demanding justice, education, health care, and a new constitution to replace the strident rules imposed on the country during the Pinochet military dictatorship. Urgent and topical, My Imaginary Country features harrowing front-line protest footage and interviews with the dynamic activist leaders who are bringing about a regime change. Guzmán powerfully connects Chile's complex, bloody history to contemporary revolutionary social movements and the election of a popular new president.
