Voices of Chile, observes the progress of democracy in Chile after the collapse of the dictatorship two decades ago. The film raises principal concerns about corporations, media, and education. Juan Guzmán, a former supreme court judge and the first to prosecute Pinochet, and economist Marcel Claude provide insight. At the street level the story unfolds through journalists, students, and much repressed indigenous peoples (the Mapuche), the film also follows the personal story of a mother's loss that turns into a lifetime pursuit. From the peaks of the Andes to the shores of the Pacific Ocean, Chileans candidly address key issues relevant to other nations who are seeking democracy.
