Fernando Valenzuela. Chile. 2008. DigiBeta. Documentary. 65 min. In New York, an actor in an empty theater revives the last hours of President Allende, in September 11, 1973. Here, all alone, with the certainty that he is fighting his last battle, he remembers his childhood, his beloved father, his family, the women he loved, and confronts his ultimate fate without hesitation.
