Indocumentales presents Chicago Boys

27 February, 2017 – The Indocumentales film and dialogue series, co-produced by WCPUN affiliate What Moves You?, Cinema Tropical, and NYU’s Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, presented the New York premier of Chicago Boys, a film by Carola Fuentes and Rafael Valdeavellano,  documenting the process by which, with the enabling backdrop of Pinochet’s military dictatorship, Chilean students of the Chicago School of Economics applied Milton Friedman’s theories to make Chile into a living lab for extreme neoliberalism. Following the screening, guest speakers Marcial Godoy and Paul Hoeffel engaged participants in a critical conversation, facilitated by WCPUN E.D. Shamina de Gonzaga, exploring how the political, economic, legal and human rights abuses that transpired in Chile during the dictatorship are relevant for crises in the world today.
