Ephemeral Histories

Chapter 5 studies documentary films as rich historical documents and creative political exercises. Chilean documentarians turned their attention to the streets in order to reconcile cinematic form and political commitment in the three years of Allende’s presidency. The films they made emerge as key sources for political history. They shed light on the struggle over urban spaces as a political tactic. They also proposed a complex and reciprocal relationship between political and aesthetic modes. Their films were creative attempts to engage and understand the relationship between politics and visual culture, and act as evidence of how styles and forms of political participation were rapidly and radically changing in the 1960s and 70s.
