A note from our curator, independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
For BBC Treasure Hunter Aric Queens, I see that artistic interpretations of revolt are like “naughty, underground history lessons.” Wanting a piece of the history surrounding the 1973 Chilean coup d’etat, Queens heads out in search of communist propaganda. Valparaiso is a city that boasts 17 universities in 36 square miles and walls upon walls of political graffiti. It shouldn’t be too hard to find someone selling anti-establishment wares, right? Not so easy, Queens finds. But he does unearth some fascinating characters. My observation: This film shows that the journey often yields more treasure than the destination.
