INTO FILM FESTIVAL - Screening & Q&A: BAFTA Scotland presents Nae Pasaran with Director Felipe Bustos Sierra
This thoughtful documentary depicts the little-known true story of Scottish workers of a Rolls Royce factory who stood in solidarity with Chilean citizens and against Pinochets dictatorship. In 1974 they showed their support by refusing to carry out repairs on the engines of Hawker Hunter planes, which made up of almost half of Chiles Air Force. This boycott lasted for four years but the group did not become aware of the impact they had until later on. The films director, the son of a Chilean exile himself, finds some of the individuals that took part in the profound act of allyship. This heartening documentary delves into Pinochets fifteen years in power while also being an important piece of evidence of what seemingly small acts of solidarity can have on an international level.
