Patricio Guzmán and five colleagues had been filming the political developments in Chile throughout the nine months leading up to that day. The bombing of the Presidential Palace, in which Allende died, would now become the ending for Guzmán's seminal documentary The Battle of Chile (1975-76), an epic chronicle of that country's open and peaceful socialist revolution, and of the violent counter-revolution against it.
This 4-disc set includes:
- The Battle of Chile - Part One: The Insurrection of the Bourgeoisie
- The Battle of Chile - Part Two: The Coup d'Etat
- The Battle of Chile - Part Three: The Power of the People
- Chile,Obstinate Memory, documentary by Patricio Guzman
- A 22 minute filmed interview with Patricio Guzman
- A booklet with texts and reviews, including Pauline Kael's from The New Yorker
