Pinochet’s Children / Pinochets Kinder - Zeit uns wiederzusehen

For almost three decades Augusto Pinochet has been the personification of the authoritarian father for Chile – a leader who loves his people but who had to take rigorous action in order to save them. A whole generation of Chileans has suffered under the rule of this unwanted father.
This generation, educated under the murderous tutelage of the dictator, brought up with and against him, today represents Chile´s dark past as well as the most hopeful expectations for the future.
They are Pinochet´s Children.
This is a film about them.
