Abstract (Summary)

From 1973 until 1990, Chile was subjected to one of Latin America's most oppressive dictatorships. Although more the forty years has passed since the coup of 1973 and democracy has been restored, Chile is still grappling with this period. Chilean society remains divided when it comes to constructing meaning of and remembering Pinochet's legacy. In this paper, I will explore collective memory regarding the 1973 coup in a polarized society through the coming of age film Machuca directed by Andrés Wood.
