Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
The events surrounding the military coup which toppled the leftists Chilean government of Salvador Allende are chronicled in this Soviet docudrama. Nochi Nad Chili doesn't go deeply into the names or motives of the hidden forces which might have sponsored the coup (the CIA and IT&T had been named as perpetrators). Instead, this film confines its efforts to the main events themselves and is based on interviews with eyewitnesses, including many who resisted the takeover.
