The LSESU Chile Society invites you to the screening of Breaking the Brick, documentary on the Chilean social unrest that will be premiering at the Sheffield Doc Fest 2022. We will later talk with the documentary directors, Carola Fuentes and Rafa Valdeavellano. LIMITED TICKETS.

In 2019, millions of Chileans rose up in a social unrest process that resulted in radical change: the call for an assembly that will change the Pinochet dictatorship's constitution and its economic liberal model, referred to as ‘The Brick’. This change is seen through the eyes of Ramiro, a wealthy businessman, and Mariana, a lower middle-class teacher. Historical conflicts that were long thought resolved come to light as the assembly process draws closer, showing how the wounds of a dictatorship are deep, lasting and must be reconciled.
