About Machuca: in 1973, the Chilean military under the direction of General Augusto Pinochet, and backed by the CIA, overthrew the shaky socialist government of democratical elected President Salvador Allende. The coup led to the murder of 3,000 leftist Allende supporters and the detention of an estimated 250,000 political prisoners. Set against the background of the political instability that led to the crisis, Andreas Woods’ “Machuca” is a story of the friendship between two 12 year old boys from different sides of the social spectrum.
