- FROM CHILE... AN EMBRACE OF HOPE
- (1990, 68 mins, Amnesty International, Directed by Larry Jordan)
- Amnesty had wanted to visit Chile as part of the Human Rights Now tour in 1988 - but the presence of General Pinochet's dictatorship prevented that. In 1990, Pinochet was finally banished and Amnesty helped the people of Chile celebrate with a two-day music festival in the very stadium where Pinochet's thugs had once imprisoned and murdered Chilean citizens. The festival was headlined by an eclectic lineup including Sting, Peter Gabriel, Jackson Browne, SinŽad O'Connor, Wynton Marsalis, Ruben Blades and a newly-politicized New Kids on the Block. Never seen in the US. Never on home video or DVD anywhere in world. This will be the US Premiere of the film in any media and its World Theatrical Premiere.
