Guillermo Calderón



With German surtitles /  With English surtitles /  Spanish /  100 minutes

In preparation for his piece “Escuela”, Calderón carried out interviews with Jorge Mateluna – former guerrillero in the Chilean FPMR, who spent 14 years in jail for his activities. During the performances Mateluna was once again convicted for his alleged participation in a bank robbery. Calderón reflects how artistic activity relates to political violence, and what guilt and justice might mean in a post-Pinochet era.
