Machuca (2004)

Two boys observe a political coup in their native Chile.

In 1973, the Chilean military, under the direction of General Augusto Pinochet and backed by the CIA, overthrew the shaky socialist government of democratically elected President Salvador Allende. Set against the background of the political instability that led to the crisis, Machuca is the moving story of the friendship between two boys from different sides of the social spectrum.
