Abstract

The people of Spain and Chile have dealt with the painful histories of their military dictatorships in distinct ways. In this project, I analyze two documentary films from each country about their dictatorial pasts in order to explore the concept of historical memory and how the processes of healing and understanding differ in Spain and Chile. For decades, a lack of openness regarding the Franco Regime persisted in Spain, whereas the people of Chile are much more forward with their demands for truth and justice. The documentaries of Armengou/Belis and Patricio Guzmán are important catalysts to dialogue and the creation of a shared version of the past.
