Set during the early days of Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship, Chile ‘76 builds from a character study to a suspenseful thriller as it explores one woman’s precarious experience with political engagement. Carmen (Aline Kuppenheim) lives a sheltered life. She heads to her summer house in the off-season to supervise its renovation, while also performing local charitable works through her church. Her husband, children, and grandchildren come back and forth, bringing reminders of the world beyond. When the family priest asks her to take care of an injured young man he has been sheltering in secret, Carmen is inadvertently drawn into the world of the Chilean political opposition and must face real-world threats she is unprepared to handle, with potentially disastrous consequences for her and her entire family. 2022, Chile/Argentina, 95 minutes, Spanish with English subtitles.

The conversation after Chile ’76 will be led by Dr. Juan Pablo Valenzuela, assistant professor of History and Political Sciences at Perimeter College, Georgia State University, who will participate by Skype.

Chile ’76, by Manuela Martelli, is brought to you by Rivertown Film in collaboration with the Global Film Series and the annual Hispanic & Latina/o/x Heritage Month hosted by St. Thomas Aquinas College. The Global Film Series is a platform to showcase films offering unique perspectives and inspiring cross-cultural dialogue. They present films that explore the human experience, and carefully curate films from Latin America, the United States, and beyond, that strive to foster an appreciation for the interconnectedness of our global community.

This September marks the 50th anniversary of the coup d’état in Chile, September 11, 1973, when General and military dictator Augusto Pinochet, with the support of the CIA, orchestrated the fall of the democratically elected president Salvador Allende. To commemorate and reflect on the occasion, Rivertown Film and St. Thomas Aquinas College come together to honor the history and cultural heritage through the lens of cinema. We invite you to join us in the screening and presentation of Chile ’76 by Manuela Martelli,

Chile ’76 not only commemorates a significant anniversary in Chilean history but also holds a mirror to the broader struggles for democracy, human rights, and social justice that reverberated across continents. The film presents an opportunity for us to engage in a dialogue about the consequences of political upheaval, the resilience of communities, and the power of art to bear witness to collective experiences.

Chile ’76 debuted internationally at the Cannes Film Festival and was awarded Best First Film at the London Film Festival. In addition, Manuela Martelli won Best Director at the Athens Film Festival, and Kuppenheim won Best Actress at the Tokyo International Film Festival.

A gripping psychological thriller … one of the finest Latin American productions to open stateside this year” – Los Angeles Times

“Critic’s Pick!” “A sly genre exercise, an example of how political repression can squeeze a domestic melodrama until it takes the shape of a spy thriller.” “A visually and tonally meticulous exploration of political resistance and conscience.” –The New York Times

“Dazzling. What begins as a muted marital melodrama slowly boils into a restrained political thriller, with an ease and skill all the more impressive in a first feature.” – Variety

“This searingly intense character study sees a woman questioning her cosy bourgeois lifestyle in Pinochet’s Chile. An invaluable demonstration of feminine revolutionary cinema.” – Little White Lies

“Must-Watch! Chile ’76 is the foreign film you’d be ashamed to miss… A period thriller of beguiling power, energized by its portrait of one woman’s heroism.” – The Daily Beast

“Shrewdly compelling. Aline Kuppenheim is excellent in a film that leverages its genre into an unnervingly timeless study of authoritarianism.” – Indiewire

Finely controlled and tense with the perpetual promise of violence… [and] a hell of a performance from Küppenheim as the heroine.” – The New Yorker

O jogo móvel tem vindo a crescer há vários anos. Naturalmente, os melhores casinos online também reagem à tendência e fornecem-lhe várias aplicações ou websites móveis. Nesta página, dedicamo-nos especificamente às últimas e mais populares opções de jogos móveis que são oferecidas no mundo dos casinos em linha. No teste encontrará toda a informação sobre aplicações para dispositivos Android e iOS, assim como websites móveis.
Cada casino móvel Português tem a sua própria forma de "fornecer" aos jogadores slots móveis e clássicos. Alguns dependem de aplicações especiais para smartphones Android, bem como para iPhones ou mesmo iPads. Geralmente, os pequenos programas funcionam nos telemóveis correspondentes, mas também é maravilhoso jogar em movimento com um tablet.
Outras empresas, contudo, juram pelos sites da HMTL5. Este é, por assim dizer, o casino original com quase todo o portfólio em forma comprimida. Ambas as variantes têm vantagens, pelo que no final terá de decidir por si próprio qual a solução que melhor se adapta a si e às suas necessidades. HTML5 é sempre adequado se utilizar um smartphone ou tablet com sistemas que não os mencionados - Windows, por exemplo. Para este software, muito poucos casinos online desenvolveram até agora aplicações especiais. Assim, a coisa mais fácil a fazer é chamar o URL do casino e depois beneficiar da oferta de jogos móveis directamente no browser.
Em princípio, isto deve funcionar sempre sem problemas nos dispositivos actuais. O desempenho na área dos jogos móveis está a melhorar visivelmente, de modo que esta opção de jogo dificilmente é inferior à do casino com navegador no PC de casa. É claro que não se pode jogar apenas gratuitamente em movimento. Os sites HTML5 são, no final, algo como a forma pequena do grande casino. Isto significa que iniciar sessão e jogar para obter ganhos reais é tão fácil na estrada como em casa, no ambiente de trabalho. A única diferença é, evidentemente, a resolução mais pequena, e é aqui que o trigo é separado do joio.
