"With unassuming, generous elegance, the Chilean doc master finds hope and political optimism in his homeland's 2019 protest movement." - Jessica Kiang, Variety

he great filmmaker Patricio Guzman has been using increasingly creative means to document political unrest in his native Chile since the military coup in 1973. In October 2019, he returned to witness an unexpected new revolution. One and a half million people demonstrated in the streets of Santiago for more democracy, a more dignified life, a better education, a better health system and a new Constitution. My Imaginary Country is an inspirational film about hope for real, positive social change in a time when basic rights and liberties are under threat across the globe.
