City of Photographers... an amazing film
11 May 2007 | by dippydunnSee all my reviews

I saw this film at the ICA in London and I was, quite simply, blown away. The film, documentary in style, tells the story of photographers in Chile under the reign of Pinochet. As the events in question happened in the 1980's the film features interviews with many of the photographers involved and this adds a very personal and real feel to the piece. Along with the photos that the photographers took and achieve footage of them taking the now legendary images, you get a real sense of 'being there'.

It is both revealing politically and touching emotionally. I recommend it to everyone.
