Filmmaker Nanni Moretti recounts the 1973 coup d'état in Chile, which put an end to Salvador Allende's democratic government.

After the coup, the Italian Embassy in Chile played a major role in helping the opposers of the regime. These brave men are represented in this outstanding movie.


"Nanni Moretti crafts this fiercely earnest documentary with a frank simplicity that feels remarkably original." - Richard Brody,
New Yorker

"In Moretti's deft hands, this seemingly small film delivers in multiple arenas: as a historical document, a condemnation of fascism, a journey of hope, and a universal call for compassion." - Anita Katz, San Francisco Examiner

"Nanni Moretti narrates and listens, and he narrates and thinks, and he narrates and moves us with some of the most noble and enduring weapons of cinema." - Javier Porta Fouz, La Nación

"With the worldwide rise of the right wing in the 21st century, Santiago, Italia remains a timely reminder of oppression's human toll and the little resistances and allegiances that keep people alive." - Carmen Paddock, One Room With A View
