The Green, Nunhead’s new community centre which is managed by the Nunhead’s Voice – a local community group for the people of Nunhead is putting on a free screening of the film NAE PASARAN by director Felipe Bustos Sierra.
This event is supported by The Green, Nunhead's Voice, Films for Food and Peckham & Nunhead Free Film Festival. The event is free but they are asking for a food donation for Southwark Foodbank.
Felipe Bustos Sierra’s feature charts the incredible true story of the Scots who managed to ground half of Chile’s Air Force, from the other side of the world, in the longest single act of solidarity against Pinochet’s brutal dictatorship.
In 1974 a group of workers at the Rolls Royce factory in East Kilbride showed their support for the people of Chile by refusing to carry out the vital repairs of engines for Hawker Hunter planes, which had been used during the brutal military coup in September 1973. The boycott endured for four years but the Scottish workers never knew what impact they had; it was a matter of conscience and an act of solidarity. Bustos Sierra – himself the Scotland-based son of a Chilean exile – reunites inspirational figures Bob Fulton, Robert Somerville, Stuart Barrie and John Keenan to hear their story. With unprecedented access, Nae Pasaran also ventures much further to detail the horrors of the Pinochet years, meets survivors of the period and hears the Chilean side of the story.
