Main contributor
Vásquez, David
A commemoration of Chile’s Sept. 11, 1973, which marks the assassination of president Salvador Allende and the start of the military dictatorship, held at Edmonton Public Library. The event is centred around the efforts of the children of Chilean exiles to preserve the memory of their heritage and the political trauma that their parents and grandparents experienced. Litzy Baeza gives a talk about the importance of oral testimony in recalling the Chilean dictatorship. The work of various artists is featured at this event, including Gabriela Rosende and her series entitled “The Unmarked Graves,” and the People’s Poet, a spoken word and rap group. At the end, filmmaker Sergio Olivares introduces a full screening of his documentary "El 11" about the Chilean coup d'état in 1973 and the Chilean-Canadian community in Edmonton.
